The war occurred during the reign of the Roman emperor Domitian, in the years 86–88 AD. At the end of 85 or the beginning of 86 AD, the Dacian king Duras ordered his troops to attack the Roman province of Moesia on the southern course of the Danube river. The Dacian army was led by Diurpaneus. Romans were caught by surprise, since the governor Oppius Sabinus and a legion, probably the V Alaudae, were annihilated. - en.wikipedia.org
