> The Dalmatia Greek Influence

In 389 B.C. Greek settlers founded the town of Issa on the island of Vis, and in 385 the very strong settlement Pharos sprang up in the northern cove on the island of Hvar. On land, Greek settlers founded Tragurion (Trogir) andEpetion (Stobrec).

Under the Roman rule, that directed the organization of life along the entire coast, many present-day towns were founded and already then connected with roads, that even today keep those same directions.

Salona, the onetime port of the Illyrian tribe of Delmati, became the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. At the time it had 60,000 inhabitants and because of its administrative importance was the meeting point of passengers and tradesmen from the entire Mediterranean.

Salona bears testimony of the earliest traces of Christianity on the east Adriatic Coast. Religion was the reason why many lives were taken, mostly during the rule of Emperor Diocletian who in 303 issued a decree forbidding Christianity. The bishop of Salona and Syrian martyr Domnio (Dujam in Croatian) was the victim of prosecuting of Christianity. In memory of this bishop he is still celebrated as the patron-saint of Split.

Diocletian, a former soldier, probably a native of Salona, who was proclaimed Roman Emperor in 284, had a magnificent palace built from 295 to 305 (nucleus of today's Split) in the vicinity of Salona. When the agreed period of the rule of two emperors came to an end, he retired to the palace where he spent the last ten years of his life.

The Croats settled these areas in the first decades of the 7th century, founding a state in the hinterland with Solin and later Knin as one of its centres.
