Mentioned by Evliya Çelebi and found in archive documents dated in the end of the 16th century1). Because it is rarely mentioned there are frequent mistakes in reading such as: Raçna, Zacesne, Zacasna and many others.

Location - N 45.17, E 17.22; in Croatia, Brodsko-Posavska countymap

:!: According some researchers2) the center of this sancak is to be found in what is now Pakrac
