A good and noble man. He ruled over Dalmatia, after the Illyrians had settled in Epirus. He had had a Roman education and had become expert in divination as well as general culture. He held his authority independently, subject neither to the Roman empire nor to any other ruler of the nations; but he was autonomous, leading his subjects with justice. He had sufficient wisdom in government and marvelous courage well-tested in warfare.[1] The philosopher Sallustius was at his court.[2]
