The paper focuses on the Upper Moesian municipium Aelianum, whose existence and location have been long debated. Relatively recently, a new epigraphic attestation of the municipium has been discovered and published, which calls for a reconsideration of all existing data and hypotheses about this little-known Roman town, in order to contribute to the study of the urbanisation in the Roman province of Upper Moesia.
