ABOUT THE TREASURE

The old Hellenistic town of Daorson consists of three units whose disposition is determined by the specific configuration of the terrain. The central highest part is occupied by the acropolis. It was built on a prehistoric fortified settlement. To the south and south-west below the acropolis is located the second area - the terraces, while to the east is the third area – the residential and commercial zone. The time of the demise of the town of Daorson can be determined with fair accuracy. It is presumed that it came during the wars waged by the Romans against the Delmati. No lasting settlement ever again appeared on the ruins of the ancient town. Not far away, a new settlement called Diluntum Municipium developed - on the site of the present-day Stolac.
