Aedava (also known as Aedeva, Aedabe, Aedeba, Aedadeba) was a Dacian settlement located south of the Danube in Moesia (present-day northern Bulgaria).[1][2] In his De Aedificiis, the 6th century AD historian Procopius placed Aedava on the Danubian road between Augustae and Variana.[3][4] He also mentioned that Emperor Justinian (r. 527–565) restored the damaged portion of the town defenses.[3]
