The Siege of Urviventus[1] or Siege of Urbs Vetus[2] took place during Justinian I's Gothic War.[1] The Byzantine commander Belisarius dispatched a strong force to take Urviventus, himself marching on Urbinus.[1] 1.000 Goths[3] under Albilas had been sent to defend the city.[1] Belisarius, after capturing Urbinus, reinforced the besieging army.[1] He assessed the situation, deciding the town could not be taken by storm.[4] When the town ran out of supplies the defenders surrendered.[1][2]
