Next to the maternity ward of the Ptuj hospital, a remnant of a Roman road has been presented on the site of its discovery. The road running from south west to north-east was originally six meters wide. In the excavations during the construction of the maternity ward, 24 meters of the road were examined. The edges of the road were reinforced with upright chipped stones. A narrow ditch lined with upright stones ran down the middle, separating the road into two lanes with visible ruts. This road was the most important traffic artery through Poetovio and led east to Savaria (Szombathely) and on to the fortifications along the Danube. The road was well maintained judging from the discovered traces of repair and reinforcement. Its maintenance was probably abandoned after the fall of the Roman town.
