Pannonia

 

a Roman province formed in A.D. 8 after the division of the Roman province of Illyricum into Upper II-lyricum, or Dalmatia, and Lower Illyricum, or Pannonia. Pan-nonia occupied the western part of modern Hungary, the northern part of modern Yugoslavia, and the eastern part of modern Austria. It derived its name from the Pannonians, a group of Illyrian tribes.

Pannonia became highly romanized during its 400 years of Roman rule. Its economy was agricultural, since the local population, which was increased by an influx of barbarians, was primarily rural. Continual wars in the second to fifth centuries with border tribes, including the Quadi, Marcomanni, Sarma-tians, Goths, and Huns, led to the fall of Roman rule in Pannonia in the early fifth century.
