Today’s Memory – Rosia Montana first documentary attestation

Rosia Montana is first documentary attested


6 February 131

Roșia Montană was founded by the Romans during the reign of Trajan under the name Alburnus Maior as a gold mining town.

There is archaeological and metallurgical evidence of gold mining in the Golden Quadrilateral of Transylvania since the late Stone Age. Alburnus Maior was founded by the Romans during the rule of Trajan as a mining town, with Illyrian colonists from South Dalmatia. The earliest reference to the town is on a wax tablet dated 6 February 131.

Archaeologists have discovered in the town ancient dwellings, necropolises, mine galleries, mining tools, 25 wax tablets and many inscriptions in Greek and Latin, centred around Carpeni Hill. The Romans left Dacia in 271.
