The label 'Illyrians' was used in different contexts, probably developing as an ethnographic generalisation of foreigners related to similar indigenous language.

Liburni, an Illyrian people on the NE coast of the Adriatic, once dominated a large part of the coast of *Illyricum (Strabo 6. 2. 4) but by the Roman period they were confined to the sector between the river Arsia (mod. Raša) on the west side of Istria (2) and the Titius (Krka), where the Delmatae began.
