trojan - The Odyssey

According to some saved documents and maps, the Vrana area was an important intersection of the Roman public roads, which connected the nearby Blandona and Jadera, also Aenona, Nedinum, Aseria, Hadar, Burnum, Scardona and Salona. The „Scardonian main road“ is of special interest. It used to be a busy road leading to Aenona, across Jadera and Blandona to Scardona. The road was built in a straight line, which was of vital importance for the old roads since it passed by the springs Bristovac, Kasic, Novak, Vrba, Lug, Starac, Misec, Skorobic, Subiba, Biba, Pecina, Vrana and even Veliki Stabanj, Mali Stabanj, Kakma, Tinjska vrulja, Dubalj, Lokvenjak and Luzenjak. Some of these springs have kept their pre-Roman names till today. After the battle on Siget in 1526, there was no organized resistance to the Turk invasion and so Vrana too fell under Turk rule in 1527 lasting until 1648.

For fear of the unknown and powerful Asian army, the locals fled from Vrana to the village Betina on the island Murter; some of them even went to southern Istria. Even today the people of Betina grow huge olive trees in „Modrave“ on the reef between the sea and the Lake of Vrana, which never fell under the Turk rule. The town of Vrana was inhabited exclusively by Muslims and its surroundings was inhabited by orthodox Vlach population. When Vrana was liberated in 1684 three mosques were discovered on the spot and the forts were found ruined. The Turks had rearranged the fort thoroughly by turning it into barracks for 150 infantry-men and 100 horsemen. ... & another address end

There a Sibyl took him to the underworld and foretold the majesty of Rome, which would be founded by his people. He negotiated a settlement with the local king, Lavinius, and was wed to his daughter, Lavinia. This triggered a war with other local tribes, which culminatied in the founding of the settlement of Alba Longa, ruled by Aeneas and Lavinia's son Silvius.

Three hundred years later, according to Roman myth, his descendants Romulus and Remus founded Rome. The details of the journey of Aeneas, his affair with Dido, and his settling in Italy are the subject of the Roman epic poem the Aeneid by Virgil.
