Micia was a large Roman fort for auxiliary troops and an important part of the western Dacian limes (limes Dacia). The archaeological site is located near the municipality of Vețel (Witzel), Hunedoara county in Transylvania, Romania. This Roman garrison monitored and secured the road and the river route to Partiscum, today Szeged, Hungary. In addition, there was a strategically important river port. In the civil settlement, there were large baths and a small amphitheater. The large number of ancient inscriptions are significant.
