Însemnare despre armistiţiul de Paşti de la Tomis


During the Roman-Avar-Slavic war at the end of the 6th century, the Avars of the Khagan Bayan laid siege to the fortress of Tomis, the capital of the Scythia Minor province. In the spring of 600, at Easter time, the Avar ruler called a truce with the besieged fortress. He even sent food to the starving population. The event illustrates the climate of complicity near the border marked by the Danube in that era.
