Dacia was abandoned during Aurelian's reign. "And because Moesia and Illyricum had been entirely devastated, losing the hope that he could still preserve the province of Dacia that Trajan had constituted beyond the Danube, he left it in the enemy's way, and he settled the Romans brought from the Dacia's cities and villages in the middle of Moesia and of the zone that now divides the two Moesiae, giving it the name of Dacia, a territory that now is on the right side of the Danube, as the river flows to the sea, while it had been on the left before" -- Breviarium ab urbe condita (breviary of the Roman history) by Euthropius, magister memoriae (chieftain of the imperial archives) during Valens' reign, c. 369 A.D.
