Sažetak
The Roman Province of Dalmatia, aside from its geostrategic position, was of considerable economic importance to the Roman Empire. The population that lived here in the pre-Roman period essentially survived by farming and stockbreeding. More importance was given to farming, fishing industrial activity, handicrafts and trade when Hellenic colonists arrived on the Central Adriatic islands and coast. With the establishment of Roman rule almost all aspects of of economic activity were promoted. Even so, Rome was primarily interested in the exploitation of mineral resources which they initiated almost immediately after the establishment of Roman power. The exploitation of metals, especially precious ones, was strictly controlled. Security and a successful economy was dependant on the provision of a dense road network, military camps, fortifications, piers, ports etc. Within the interior of Dalmatia urbanisation was promoted in accordance with Roman economic interests. Some Roman settlements developed to become significant economic and cultural foci and eventually centres of the Christian faith during the late Antique period. The areas that definitely formed part of the Province of Dalmatia, along with the Province of Pannonia, connected eastern with western parts of the Roman Empire. Consequently, the road network of these two privinces was highly developed. The maritime routes across the Adriatic connected the Mediterranean basin with the Central European zone. These communication routes were the precondition for the intense development of the economy in Dalmatia.
