BOLOGA (“Resculum”) Cluj, Romania.

Roman camp (2d-3d c.) on a plateau at the junction of the Săcueul valley with Crişul Tepede river, the westernmost point of Dacia. It is mentioned in a tabula cerata (CIL III, p. 924, tab.cer. I= ILS, 7215).

Excavations have revealed that the earth camp was replaced by a stone one (213 x 133 m), quadrilateral with round corners. The gates protrude in a semicircle, and the corner towers are trapezoidal in section. Both Cohors II Hispanorum Scutata Cyrenaica equitata and Cohors I Aelia Gaesatorum milliaria were stationed here. Inscriptions, stamped bricks and tiles, coins, and Dacian ceramics have been found.
