The Bor District (Serbian: Борски округ / Borski okrug) is a district of Serbia. It has a population of 123,848 (2011 census). The administrative centre of the Bor district is Bor and the judicial one, due to tradition, Negotin.
The Thracians dominated the region before the Roman conquest in the 1st century BC that weakened and subdued the Paleo-Balkan tribes. The Moesi, a Thracio-Dacian tribe, were defeated by the Roman army under Marcus Licinius Crassus, the consul of 30 BC.The region was organized into Moesia Inferior in 87 AD by Emperor Domitian.
Hellenistic religious influence is attested through archeological findings in Rovine[disambiguation needed] and Tamnič where Heracles was worshipped, a relief of Zeus, Herakles and Dionysos found in Bukovo.
