Thermidava was an ancient Dacian town in Illyria mentioned by Ptolemy (90-168, C.E.) as an inland town of Dalmatia. It could be located near modern Scodra
Roman Emperor Trajan marched with his troops for Naissus and crossed Thermidava prior to the Roman-Dacian Wars. In the town he was greeted by Dacians. The next town he passed was Ulpiana.
