Roman Emperor Julius Casear, BC. In 47, he came to Zile, he defeated II. Pharnakes, the king of Pontus and thus thwarted the most important obstacle in front of a thousand years of Roman domination in Anatolia. Some travelers and researchers who came to Zile, who understood the importance of this war, which we remembered with the words “Veni, Vidi, Vici’ of Caesar and accepted as a turning point in the history of Anatolia, came to Zile and examined the location of the war. Nevertheless, the point where the war took place has remained an enigma even today. On the other hand, the knowledge of the wars that took place in the ancient period, in which the great historical figures played a role, was considered as important as the military-strategy as well as the science of history. In this study, ın Zile, ın 1925, the etude of Colonel Georg Veith, retired from the Austro-Hungarian army, in order to determine the location of the Battle of Zela and to create a map of the war was examined but unfortunately this etüde in Zile, cost his life. In our study, the subject was re-evaluated through Veith's analysis and the results obtained were analyzed with regard to the possible battlefield options of the Battle of Zela.
