Drobeta is a Dacian settlement that was conquered by the Romans in A.D. 101-2. Trajan's engineer Apollodorus of Damascus built a bridge here that spanned the Danube in 103-5. This bridge, supported by 20 stone pilings and extending 1,135 m connected Drobeta to Pontes (on the right bank of the river).
