Ancient Salona

Salona was an ancient Illyrian Delmati city in the first millennium BC. The Greeks had set up an emporion (marketplace) there. After the conquest by the Romans, Salona became the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. When the Roman Emperor Diocletian retired, he erected a monumental palace nearby; this massive structure, known as Diocletian's Palace, became the core of the modern city of Split. In present times Salona is situated near today's town of Solin (near Split). Salona was largely destroyed in the invasions of the Avars and Slavs first in 614. The Romans occupied Emperor Diocletians palace in the year 639 AD.
