Photographer's Note

Ancient Roman glassware and beakers displayed in the Budva Museum. The Romans annexed this part of Montenegro in the 2nd century BC. It has been previously known as BATHUA, BUTOBA, & BUTUA. They supplanted the Illyrians who had been there since the 5th century BC. After the Romans, were the Byzantines (535- 1184), then the Nemanjic dynasty (1184 – 1186), the Serbs, then the Venetians in 1442, with frequent attempts by the Turkish Ottomans to conquer the city, then the French in 1807, the Austro Hungarians in 1813 until 1918, then the Italians 1941-1944, then as part of Former Republic of Yugoslavia until Montenegro became independent in 2006. So the town has had quite a chequered history!

I've loaded a workshop of the Archeology Museum exterior for context. Btw, according to the legend, it is by the oxen that Budva got its name, (Bous – in Greek = Ox).,Kadmo%20and%20the%20Queen%20Harmonia.
