In 111 BCE, the Han Dynasty destroyed the Nanyue Kingdom and put the region under the Jiaozhi Commandery. The headquarters of the Jiaozhi Commandery was originally Miling, but was later moved to Leilou and then to Longbian. There have been many hypotheses regarding the location of Leilou and Longbian. In particular, many scholars have identified the remains of the old citadel (Lũng Khê Citadel) located in Thuận Thành District (Bắc Ninh, Vietnam) with the Leilou Citadel. Based on archaeological evidence, the late Dr. Nishimura Masanari advanced a new hypothesis that these remains were not the citadel of Leilou, but that of Longbian. This article will review historical documents about Leilou and Longbian and introduce two inscriptions recently discovered in Bắc Ninh Province to provide further support for Nishimura’s hypothesis.
