B-7 on the Map

Ancient Hispalis (Modern name is Seville) Hispalis was an important city in ancient Roman times. It was located on the left bank of the Baetis river in the province of Baetica in Hispania.

Hispalis more rarely Hispal. The modern Seville, a town of the Turdetani in Hispania Baetica, founded by the Phśnicians, and situated on the left bank of the Baetis, and in reality a seaport, for, although 500 stadia from the sea, the river is navigable for the largest vessels up to the town. Under the Romans it was an important place, with the name Iulia Romula or Romulensis, and was surpassed in size by Corduba (Cordova) and Gades alone. Under the Goths and Vandals it was the chief town in the south of Spain; and under the Arabs the capital of a separate kingdom. - Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities. New York.

Hispalis HI´SPALIS
HI´SPALIS (Ἵσπαλις: also HISPAL, Mela, 2.6, Sil. Ital. 3.392: Eth. Hispaliensis, Adj. Hispalensis: Sevilla), one of the chief cities of Hispania Baetica, stood on the left bank of the Baetis (Guadalquiver), about 500 stadia from its mouth; but still within the tidal part of the river, which was navigable for large vessels up to the city: so that it had, to a great extent, the advantages of a sea-port. It was made a colony by Julius Caesar; and although an attempt seems to have been made to exalt the neighbouring colony of Baetis above it, the very site of which is now doubtful, it ranked, in Strabo's time, among the first cities of Turdetania, next after Corduba and Gades; and afterwards even advanced in dignity: so that, in the time of Ptolemy, it had the title of μητροπόλις, and under the Vandals and Goths it ranked above Corduba, and became the capital of Southern Spain. In the Roman empire it was the seat of a convents juridicus, and bore the titles of JULIA ROMULA and COLONIA ROMULENSIS. (Strab. iii. pp. 141, 142; Hirt. Bell. Alex. 51, 56; Dion. Cass. 43.39; Plin. Nat. 3.3; Itin. Ant. pp. 410, 413, 416; Ge)g. Rav. 4.45; Philostr. Vit. Apoll. 5.3, 6; Auson. Clar. Urb. 8; Isidor. Etym. 15.1; Inser. ap. Gruter, pp. 201, 257, Orelli, vol. ii. p. 396; Florez, Esp.

Seville. The city was known from Roman times as Hispalis. The nearby Roman city of Italica, a mainly residential city at the time, is well-preserved and gives an impression of how Hispalis may have looked in the later Roman period, especially when taken in context with the excavation evidence from the nearby city of Carmona. Existing Roman features in Seville include the remnants of an aqueduct. Following were successive conquests of the Roman province of Hispania Baetica by the Vandals and the Visigoths during the 5th and 6th centuries. - Wikipedia
