Illyria was certainly a Roman province before 9 BC - I had though 167 BC, with indirect dominance for some decades before that, although I'm not certain. The hinterlands up to the Danube were not conquered until Augustus's time. But surely you know that there may have been someone named "Galba" who was not the same as the Roman emperor of that name. johnk 06:31, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Yes you're right Illyria was a Roman province before well before 9 BC. Caesar had it in 59 BC. The last king Genthius of Illyria was defeated by L. Anicus Gallus in 168 BC. But even after that there was no permanent Roman administration for a long time. Of course as you say there had been indirect Roman control for some time. As for the reference to "Galba", I had supposed that they meant P. Sulpicius Galba, consul in 200 BC who did have Macedonia for his province, during the war, I think.
