Geto-Dacians are defeated during 29-28 B.C., when Romans arrive at the sea side and at the Danube Mouth, expanding later their power over the entire region. Their domination will last for almost seven centuries, when they will build along the Danube and sea side many fortified cities. The archaeological researches located them on the south part of Sfantul Gheorghe Channel: two at Mahmudia and Murighiol, identified as Salsovia and Halmyris respectively. They revealed also in Halmyris a living continuity from the IV-th century B.C. to the VII-th century A.C. Also, on the board of a channel which bounds today the Sfantul Gheorghe Channel to the Razelm lake, they have discovered the vestiges of the last Roman fortification of the Danubian area to the sea, with defending towers and murals.

At Tulcea, the entry gate to the Delta, the archaeological researches on the hillock Hora, unveiled the ruins of the antique Aegyssus . It is known that the city has been founded during Hellenistic period and was in full development until the first half of the VII-th century A.C.
