The name of the little settlement derives from a Slavic word meaning territorial delimitation, boundary.
But long before the arrival of the Slavs in these places, Ramidava, a famous Dacian fortress mentioned by the great Greek historian Ptolemy existed here. In this village are: The Mansion Filipescu, the water mill buit since the XVIIth century, the Roman camp. In Drajna de Sus, on the hill Gradiste, between the rivers Drajna and Ogretin, in 1888 were found the traces of a Roman Camp, in an area of 20 ha. The excavations have revealed bricks with inscriptions „Legiunea I Italică”, „Legiunea a V-a Macedonică” and „Legiunea a XI-a Claudia Pia Fidelis” and tiles, pieces of glass, arrowheads, Dacian swords, coins.
