For the remainder of Domitian's reign Dacia remained a relatively peaceful client kingdom, but Decebalus used the Roman money to fortify his defences. Domitian probably wanted a new war against Dacians, and reinforced Upper Moesia with two more cavalry units brought from Syria and with at least five cohorts brought from Pannonia. Trajan continued Domitian's policy and added two more units to the auxiliary forces of Upper Moesia, and then he used the buildup of troops for his Dacian wars.
Ancient Dacia brought to life part 1. Every year, Romanians all over the country celebrate and pay tribute to the ancient Dacians, an old people of Eastern Europe who lived on the territory of present day Romania.
The draco ("dragon" or "serpent", plural dracontes) was a military standard of the Roman cavalry. The draco may have been introduced to the Roman cavalry by Sarmatian units in the 2nd century. The dragon was originally a Dacian emblem. According to Fiebiger the Romans adopted it from the Dacians, after their defeat or from the Parthians.
