Dacia Aureliana was a province of the Roman Empire found by Emperor Aurelian, after his retreat from Dacia Traiana in 271. Between 271/275 and 285, it occupied most of what is today Bulgaria. Its capital was in Serdica (modern Sofia). The Emperor Diocletian replaced Dacia Aureliana with two provinces – Dacia Mediterranea with its capital at Serdica and Dacia Ripensis, with its capital at Ratiaria. Later these two “Dacias” along with Dardania, Lower Moesia, and Prevalitana constituted the Diocese of Dacia.
