Description[edit | edit source]

Illyrians were Indo-European tribes who appeared in the western part of the Balkan Peninsula before 1000 BCE, including Corcyra island and Ambracia bay in prehistoric Epirus to the south. They mixed with Thracians in Dardania to the east, and settled Messapia across the Adriatic Sea. Illyrian kingdoms were independent for centuries, until conquered by the Roman Republic.
