The Tropaeum Traiani museum complex is made up of three units: the triumphant monument of Tropaeum Trajani (studied by Grigore Tocilescu, O. Benford and G. Niemann between 1882 and 1895), the homonymous settlement (dating from the 2nd century AD) and the site museum. Designed like a lapidarium, the modern museum building (inaugurated in 1977) comprises numerous archaeological vestiges discovered on the premises. Along one side of the museum are on display the metopes, the lower and upper friezes, the pillars, battlements and parapet blocks of the festooned attic style. In the hall centre there is the huge statue of the trophy, the inscription and weapon frieze. The other exhibits include the... ceramics collections (Hamangia culture pottery, Gaetic ceramics, Greek, Roman and Byzantine amphorae), lamps, tools, ornaments, aqueducts, sculpture, epigraphic documents.
