INTO THE CARPATHIANS

"The Goths pressured the Carpi as well, and the Carpi, sometimes in alliance with the newcomers and sometimes seeking relief, began to also seriously harass the Empire. The Romans would bend no further, however, and decided to fight, and although it took about fifty years of intermittent, brutal warfare, they finally subdued the Carpi. Most of the survivors were herded onto the plains of Pannonia the other side of the Danube and made Roman citizens, some certainly welcoming the reprieve from the Goths. A few Carpi escaped into the hills, however, some accepting harbor from the Dacians while others fled even further into the misty mountains."
