Osher Collection, University of Southern Maine
Shown here are the Roman provinces of Pannonia and Illyria (Illyris), occupying the east coast of the Adriatic Sea and the adjacent Balkan regions. Several Roman emperors, for example Diocletian, were natives of Illyria. The text panel at the lower left lists ancient tribes and places whose locations were unknown.
