DRAJNA DE SUS
Roman castellum in the Subcarpathian mountains, on the
road that leads to Transylvania through the Bratocea
pass. The castellum is rectangular (200 x 176 m) with
stone walls and towers at the corners. Among buildings
discovered inside are a praetorium and a horreum. In the
castellum and in the civil settlement nearby were found
many tiles with stamps of the Cohors I Flavia Cornmagenorum and of the legions of Moesia Inferior, I
Italica, XI Claudia, and V Macedonica. On the basis of
the coins discovered here, it has been established that
the castellum was built between 102 and 105 during the
wars against the Dacians and that it was abandoned at
the beginning of Hadrian's reign, along with other Roman
camps of N Muntenia.
