Sacidava

Between Rasova and Dunăreni places, on a high hill from the right bank of the Danube, in Musait point, there were identified traces of walls and there were recovered some inscriptions. The archaeological searches started in 1969 and continued, with some interruptions, until 1980. For the last three years slight changes at the fortification have been performed. The name of Sacidava is known from antique literary sources and it was confirmed by the epigraphic discoveries. On Musait point, there is a scythiae limes fortification, with many development phases, with a continuous evolution from the beginning of the IInd century AC until the first quarter of the VIIth century AC. There have been identified more destruction levels by fire, but some do not cover the whole fortification.
