Arcobara [7] (previously identified as Arcobadara [8][9][10]) was a fort in the Roman province of Dacia in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD.[2] It was unearthed in the village Ilişua (commune Uriu, Romania) in 1978.[2] The fort was edified by Ala I Tungrorum Frontoniana.[11] On the site a significant number of ballista projectiles were discovered: 27 stone projectiles having diameter between 7 and 13.5 cm and weigh up to 2 kg.[12] The artillery was used as defensive, probably located in the fort's towers.[12] These artifacts indicates the presence of ballistarii in this fort.[12]
