It was inaugurated the Museum Tropaeum Traiani and the replica of Roman Triumphal Monument in Adamclisi
28 May 1977
The Tropaeum Traiani is a monument in Roman Civitas Tropaensium (site of modern Adamclisi, Romania), built in 109 in then Moesia Inferior, to commemorate Roman Emperor Trajan’s victory over the Dacians, in 102, in the Battle of Tapae. Before Trajan’s construction, an altar existed there, on the walls of which were inscribed the names of the 3,000 legionaries and auxilia (servicemen) who had died „fighting for the Republic„. (Latin: Tropaeum from Greek: Tropaion, source of English: trophy).
Trajan’s monument was inspired by the Augustus mausoleum, and was dedicated to the god Mars Ultor in 107/108 AD. On the monument there were 54 metopes depicting Roman legions fighting against enemies; most of these metopes are preserved in the museum nearby. The monument was supposed to be a warning to the tribes outside this newly conquered province.
