Abstract: In the 1st – 4th centuries, several ancient buildings were constructed on the northern (Barbarian) bank of the middle reaches of the Danube. As well as military buildings standing very near to the bank (Devín, Iža near Komárno), inland buildings were also built. Along the route of the amber route, 20 km from Carnuntum, a settlement was built in Stupava in the second half of the 2nd century. By analysing the finds and evidence from the Germanic settlement of the area, the author concluded that it was a trade post dependent on cooperation with the local Germanic population.
