"Soon after the Roman conquest of Pannonia in 12 BC,
Carnuntum (near Vienna, Austria)
became a base for military operations led by Tiberius against the Marcomanni, a Germanic tribal confederacy. (...)
Between AD 35 and 40, legio XV erected a military camp
which initated the Roman settlement in Carnuntum,
and became one of the largest and most important fortresses
on the Danube limes or fortified boundary."
