The temple contained a colossal statue of Apollo by Calamis, which was later taken to Rome and placed in the Capitol. The anchor on the coinage is evidence of the importance of its maritime trade.

|Members| |Auction| |Listed|, |Dyrrhachion,| |Illyria,| |Greece,| |Roman| |Protectorate,| |c.| |229| |-| |30| |B.C.||drachm|
Durrs, one of the oldest cities in Albania, was founded as Epidamnos in 627 B.C. by Greek colonists from Corinth and Corcyra, modern-day Corfu. Located around a natural rocky harbor surrounded by inland swamps and high cliffs on the seaward side, the city was difficult to attack from land or sea. After the decisive defeat of the Illyrians to Rome in 229 B.C., the new Roman rulers renamed the city Dyrrachium because Epidamnos is similar to the Latin word damnum, meaning "loss" or "harm." Dyrrhachion is Greek for "bad spine" or "difficult ridge," probably referring to the imposing cliffs near the city. Dyrrachium prospered under Roman rule and was developed as a naval and military base. Pompey made a stand there in 48 B.C. before fleeing south to Greece. Augustus made the city a colony for veterans of his legions following the Battle of Actium, proclaiming it a civitas libera (free town).

Manfred was frequently in conflict with the Papacy and was excommunicated by three different popes.

Queen Elizabeth is a descendant of King Manfred.
