During the Iron Age, the city of Beziers was a major oppidum of the Celtic Mediterranean. Numerous archaeological excavations since 1980 have revealed that Béziers was built by the Greeks in the sixth century BC.
Some archaeologists consider that it could be the oldest city in France, ahead of Marseille.
