Province of the Roman Empire, southeastern Europe. Bordered by the Danube River and the Black Sea, it was conquered by Rome (30–28 BC) and became a Roman province in AD 15. During the Dacian Wars (AD 85–89) it was divided into two provinces: Moesia Superior and Moesia Inferior. Despite barbarian invasions, it remained part of the Eastern Roman Empire until the 7th century, when it was occupied by Slavs and Bulgarians.
