(full name Gallia Narbonensis), a Roman province in Transalpine Gaul. It was conquered by the Romans about 120 B.C. In 22 B.C., during the reign of Augustus, Gallia Narbonensis was given provincial status and was one of the provinces that was under the jurisdiction of the Senate. In the fourth century A.D., it was divided into two provinces: Narbonensis Prima, with Narbo Martius (present-day Narbonne) as capital, and Narbonensis Secunda, with Aquae Sextiae (present-day Aix) as capital.
