The Seleuş commune is situated on the Eastern side of the Crişului Alb Plane, on the Cigher river. It is situated 12 km away from Ineu, 6 km from Pâncota and 45 km away from the city of Arad. It is also crossed by the Cigher river, the Morilor Canal, Crişul Alb to the North and the Matca Canal. The Seleuş commune comprises three localities: Seleuş, Moroda and Iermata. The commune borders on the Pâncota and Ineu towns, a fact that has influenced its economical and social development. The first documented attestation of the Seleuş locality dates from 1489. The Iermata village is first documented in 1387, and the Moroda village 1508. The locality is situated in the Crişurilor Plane in the centre of the Arad county. Thus, we are dealing with the Western Plane’s low altitude, with soil predominantly from the 1st and 2nd fertility groups, favourable for doubling the current cereal, technical plants and vegetables, with sub-hilly land and those in inter-mountain depressions, where large cattle, pomiculture and, at large, viticulture have represented the blazon of these region for centuries, and alpine grasslands, where sheep breeding is a part of history.
