Ancient Risan was the capital of the Illyrian tribe of the Ardiaei, who formed a powerful state and conquered the surrounding Illyrian tribes by controlling trade routes both at sea and on land. The most famous ruler of Risan was the Illyrian Queen Teuta. Archaeological objects testify to the importance of the city in the ancient period, one of the most significant being the money of King Ballaios, the Illyrian king, who continued to rule after the defeat of King Gentius by the Roman Empire.
