Byzantine Salona, Dalmatia (527 - 565)
Salona (Solin, Croatia) was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. When the Diocletian retired, he erected his monumental "Diocletian's Palace" nearby (at modern Split, Croatia). The Salona mint was open only during the reign of Justinian I. The city was largely destroyed in the invasions of the Avars and Slavs around the year 639 AD.
