MOESIA, a country of Europe, between Mount Hemus and the Danube, joining to Pannonia. There were two provinces of Moesia, now called Servia and Bulgaria. The latter (or Upper Moesia) lying towards the Black Sea, and which was subdued by the Romans under L. Piso, during the reign of Augustus, the former (or Lower Moesia) was inhabited by the Getae.

See P. M. S. COL. VIM., Provinciae Moesiae Superioris Colonia Viminacium.----The Roman legions stationed in the Upper Province are honored by one of the large brass of Hadrian, on which, with the legend EXERCITVS MOESIACVS, that Emperor stands on an estrade addressing four soldiers. A visit paid by the same Prince to the province itself is also commemorated on another large bronze medal, inscribed ADVENTVI AVG. MOESIAE, and exhibiting the Emperor and the Province sacrificing at an altar.
