About Fréjus

The town is named after Julius Caesar, who founded the colony in 49 BC. The name was attested in its Latinised form "Frégida" as early as 1310. It became "Fregues" during the Renaissance and later Fréjus (the modern French spelling). In classical times, it was called Forum Julii ("Julius' market"), a reference to Julius Caesar's founding of a forum here in 49 BC. In return for his services rendered to Cilicia and Africa at large, Juba II of Numidia gave this city one hundred thousand modii (about ) of wheat yearly; but when he died Augustus confiscated all his property within Italy except what had been given by him to individuals or communities: hence Pliny says that Augustus left nothing belonging to Juba save Forum Julii only ("Hist." iii 5).
