Between 244-247, under Philip the Arab, after Carpian and Getae (or Goths, confusion due to Jordanes) attacks, the Roman army abandoned the limes for some time. The Roman army returned to the limes, but then closed the road to the Rucăr-Bran pass, the road starting from today's village of Băiculeşti. Later, another limes was built in the area, known as Brazda lui Novac. Today the vallum is used by the Romanian railroad Curtea de Argeş-Piteşti-Roşiori de Vede-Turnu Măgurele.
