Tribes in Illyricum and environs in AD 6, the year of the Great Illyrian revolt, post Roman conquest

Bato of the Breuci,[1] also known as Breucian Bato, was the chieftain of the Breuci, an Illyrian tribe that fought against the Roman Empire in a war known as Bellum Batonianum. Bato joined his rebel forces with those led by Bato of the Daesitiates. After facing defeat, he surrendered to Tiberius in 8 CE on the bank of the Bosna river. Ultimately, Bato of the Breuci was captured by Bato of Daesitiates and was put to death after a decision was made by an assembly of the Daesitiates.[citation needed]
