Roman fortress Sexaginta Prista
Roman fortress Sexaginta Prista
Author:

The castle and the fleet station called Sexsaginta Prista were built under the Roman Emperor Vespasianus (69 - 79 A.D.) The castle was on the main road from where Belgrade is today to the delta of the Danube River. No systematic excavations have been made on the site where the castle used to be. However, some rescue excavations have been made on spots jeopardised by modern city development. It is through them that the northeastern battle tower, a part of the northern wall and the remains of four buildings have been investigated. The tower is rectangle, its inner sizes 4,00 Х 3,80 m and its walls 2,70 m thick. 50 m of the northern wall are preserved. Its width is between 2,75 and 3,00 m.

Отгоре красноречиво пише на италиански: "Русчук, България, 1911 г. Без коментар...."
