Apollonia and Epidamnos - settlements of ancient ancestors

Apollonia & Epidamnos Impression

If we were in Durres about 3,000 years ago, we would find the Illyrian tribes of the Taulants and the Parthians. They are indigenous people of this territory. The first written references appear in the 7th century BC from ancient authors. The existence of this city we owe the Greeks, whose arrival in this area was part of the so-called great colonization. They wanted to eliminate overcrowding and lack of land. Its origins date back to 628 - 627 BC when they founded the village of Epidamnos (now Durres) and 39 years later in 588 BC Apollonia. Then followed Buthroton (today Butrint) and Orikon (today Oricum), which are originated at the turn of the 6th and 5th century BC.
