Quadriburgium-ul de la Mehadia și problemele cercetării limesului roman târziu în regiunea Porților de Fier ale Dunării


In the Late Roman Limes system Mehadia was used to defend from the north the city of Dierna-Orşova. Archaeological researches of the roman camp from point „Zidina”indicates a military garrison in the fourth century AD. However Mehadia, as to the interpretation of a drawing of Count Marsigli assumed that there was a quadriburgium in the area. Currently online access to the habsburgmaps of eighteenth-century helps us to understand correctly Marigli’s drawing and accept that there isn’t a roman quadriburgium by Mehadia in that place just an austrian fort instead.
