Near the forum: The Victoria column, a late 1st century victory monument with a height of 3.7 m. Some of the original parts were found on site, some of them were recovered from the foundations of the fort wall in Kaiseraugst. Today, they are safely deposited in the museum store. A copy of the column is erected here on the original foundation.

Not far from the east gate, outside the town wall, are these impressive cylinder-shaped foundation walls.

The building was modelled on Mediterranean examples and erected for a high-ranking official of the town directly on top of the cremation site.
