The finger of old Rome is not uncommon in these valleys, and one is quite prepared to accept the tradition that any work involving the outlay of time and labour was theirs. The road in question, however, is a continuation of that entering Sieben­ bürgen from the west by the pass of the Iron Gate, and was constructed by Trajan shortly after the first occupation of the province and the final defeat of Decebalus.

After about fifteen miles of this country, there is a broad opening, presenting a scene singularly rich, lovely, and cultivated, through which the road winds easily and quietly along for some further distance.
