About the Authors
  • Illyricum, in the western Balkan peninsula, was a strategically important area of the Roman Empire where the process of Roman imperialism began early and lasted for several centuries. Dzino here examines Roman political conduct in Illyricum; the development of Illyricum in Roman political discourse; and the beginning of the process that would integrate Illyricum into the Roman Empire and wider networks of the Mediterranean world. In addition, he also explores the different narrative histories, from the romanocentric narrative of power and Roman military conquest, which dominate the available sources, to other, earlier scholarly interpretations of events.

    • Revisits the neglected region of Illyricum, which is of immense significance for the understanding of Roman imperialism and the emergence of the Roman Empire
    • Includes a timeline of the most important events in the area
    • Provides access to an extensive Slovenian bibliography in English
