Abstract and Keywords

This article presents a glimpse of the Balkans in Late Antiquity, focusing on three areas: Pannonia, Dalmatia, and Thrace. Various levels of imperial investment overcame geographic impediments to trade and communication, joining niches within Illyricum to each other and to the wider Mediterranean world. Roman involvement in the region also connected it to populations to the north, whose appetite for goods and remunerative employment was the boon and bane of Pannonia in particular.

Keywords: Balkan peninsula, landscapes, late antique period, Pannonia, Dalmatia, Thrace, Romans
