Geto-Dacians are defeated during 29-28
B.C., when Romans arrive at the sea side and at the
Danube Mouth, expanding later their power over the
entire region. Their domination will last for almost
seven centuries, when they will build along the Danube
and sea side many fortified cities. The archaeological
researches located them on the south part of Sfantul
Gheorghe Channel: two at Mahmudia and Murighiol,
identified as Salsovia and Halmyris respectively.
They revealed also in Halmyris a living
continuity from the IV-th century B.C. to the VII-th
century A.C. Also, on the board of a channel which
bounds today the Sfantul Gheorghe Channel to the
Razelm lake, they have discovered the vestiges of
the last Roman fortification of the Danubian area
to the sea, with defending towers and murals.
At Tulcea, the entry gate to the Delta,
the archaeological researches on the hillock Hora,
unveiled the ruins of the antique Aegyssus .
It is known that the city has been founded during
Hellenistic period and was in full development until
the first half of the VII-th century A.C.
