The work carried out in Numantia has supplied new stratigraphical information, revealing the superposition of the different cities. After the city was destroyed by Scipio Aemilianus in 133 BCE, it was rebuilt and destroyed again during the Sertorian War (75-72 BCE). During the times of Augustus it was populated again as a pilgrimage city on Roman Road XXVII of the Antonine Itinerary, maintaining its indigenous urban planning. During the Flavian period, the city obtained the ius latii and the municipium titles, which entailed demographical growth and a monumentalising process of the public buildings, while maintaining its indigenous urban planning and domestic structures to a large extent.
