Emperor Trajan. In 88, Tettius Iulianus commanded another Roman army under Domitian against the Dacians, who defeated the Romans at the Second Battle of Tapae.

This humiliating situation lasted until Trajan became Emperor in 98.

Emperor Domitian. In 86, the reigning Dacian King, Duras, ordered a more vigorous attack south into Roman province of Moesia. In 87, Emperor Domitian sent his prefect of the Praetorian Guards, Cornelius Fuscus, to punish the Dacians. His legions suffered a major defeat when ambushed by the forces of Diurpaneus.

After the death of Great King Burebista, Dacia split into four, then five, smaller states. The situation lasted until Diurpaneus managed to consolidate the core of Dacia around Sarmizegetusa, in today's Hunedoara county. Though not yet king, he reorganized the Dacian army, which in 85 began minor raids upon the heavily fortified Roman province of Moesia, located south of the Danube under Dacian king Duras.
