Dalmatia through history.
Part III:

In previous 2 threads you could have read:
1) about the therm Dalmatia and what it meant in the time of creation
2) what was left of her after crash of Roman authority and arrival of Slavs

⬇️
In this "sequel" we will see how Dalmatia, from the scattered cities and islands, has become what we consider Dalmatia today.

I will also explain where the historical pretensions of the Italians to Dalmatia came from.

Let's go in order.
⬇️
Everything we do and don't know about Dalmatia in the period of 2 centuries after the arrival of the Slavs, ie the end of organized Roman rule and written news about the events in it can be underlined and summarized by the provisions of the Peace treaty in Aachen, signed in 812.

On April 12, 1304 we have recorded presence of Mathew (emissary of Serbian king Stephen Uroš II Milutin) in #Dubrovnik passing by on a meeting with ban of #Croatia and #Bosnia and master of #Hum Paul I of family #Šubić for the interests of his realm ("na rabotu kraljevstva mi"). Image
Earlier that same month king Milutin wrote to Dubrovnik asking them to prepare a vessel for his emissary and to transport him to the city of #Skradin, where the seat of ban Paul was.
⬇️
So, we know for a fact that there was a meeting between Croatian ban Paul and emissary of Serbian king Milutin at that time.

Unfortunately, sources don't discover us their true reason and subject.

[DATI UFFICIALI]

Un #terremoto di magnitudo 4.6 è avvenuto alle ore 21:27 davanti alle coste ragusane (#Ragusa) ad una profondità di 30 km.

Il sisma è stato avvertito in maniera forte in tutto il ragusano e in maniera moderata/debole in tutto il resto della #Sicilia e #Malta.
Questo lo shakemap realizzato dall'INGV.
Si nota chiaramente come la zona in cui il terremoto è stato avvertito di più è stata quella del ragusano/siracusano.

Addirittura si registrano scuotimenti pari al VI-VII grado della scala Mercalli.
La zona è posta in una fascia di pericolosità sismica bassa.
Come abbiamo già detto tante volte pericolosità bassa NON vuol dire che qui i terremoti non possono avvenire, non esistono zone asismiche.
Un terremoto fino a Mw 5.0 può avvenire ovunque in Italia.

[STIMA PROVVISORIA]

Un #Terremoto forte è appena avvenuto in #Sicilia in zona/provincia #Ragusa.
La stima al momento è di magnitudo tra 4.9 e 5.4.

Attendiamo a minuti i dati INGV.
Questi i dati PRELIMINARI delle varie agenzie sismiche mondiali.
Forse la magnitudo 5 è stata solo sfiorata, a breve lo sapremo... comunque il sisma è stato avvertito in quasi tutta la Sicilia e a Malta.
Questa la scossa registrata dal sismografo di Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto (Messina), ancora non sappiamo magnitudo esatta, profondità e epicentro.

Smentiamo assolutamente legami con l'eruzione dell'Etna, sono due cose totalmente distinte.

Around 3000 BCE in eastern #Europe, a Proto-Balto-Slavic #language started to diverge from #ProtoIndoEuropean.
