ABSTRACT
The article presents the problem of the two names -- Maurocastrum (Moncastro or Maocastro for the genouesis)/ Cetatea Neagră and Asprokastron (Albi Castrum, the slavian Bialgorod, the turkish Akkerman), Cetatea Albă -- attributed, in the romanian historiography, from Nicolae Iorga until now, to a single fortification. The discussions about the location of theese two toponimics have been opened again by Matei Cazacu who pointed out the presence of another Black City (Cetaea Neagră) -- Czarnigrad, situated also at the Dniestr mouth. He advanced the hipothesis of the existence of two fortresses, situated on each bank of Dniestr, face to face. In other words on the eastern bank of the river, in front of the actual Cetatea Albă was an other fortification, Cetatea Neagră. The papers examine these hipothesys confronting them with the sources.
