 Virtual Rome: Tres Daciae provincias
Formerly a tribal center, it was captured by Trajan during his Dacian wars of conquest, and was the place he selected for his celebrated river bridge (from Pontes [Kostol] on the south bank), constructed by the great architect-engineer Apollodorus of Damascus (c 104), and depicted on the emperor's column at Rome and on his coins.
The Dacian township Malva which means 'bank,' was annexed and renamed Romula when Dacia was conquered by Trajan in AD 101-5, and Hadrian, dividing the captured territory into two provinces, probably made the place the capital of Lower Daci (later Malvensis), of which the Aluta at first formed the eastern boundary.
After the destruction of the place in Trajan's 1st Dacian War, and its subsequent garrisoning by a Roman legion, it was rebuilt by its inhabitants, but suffered final devastaion in the same emperor's Second War, after which a legionary detachement was settled on the site as its garrison.
