The available space was small and work was obviously difficult and presented a health risk for the workers. These structures possessed standard elements of underground aqueducts, free height in channels, fine ventilation, and shafts for inspection and clearing. Based on available facts, it may be concluded that aqueduct builders carefully thought about the water taken for water supply. Although hydraulically more appropriate solutions were available, those that guaranteed secure water quality were applied.

It covers around 12,260 km2, that is, about 22% of Croatia’s surface, with a population of around 860,000, or 20% of Croatia’s population. 5 times larger and spread between the Raša River in Istria in the west, Pannonia in the north, the Drina River in the east, and the Mata River in Albania in the south. In the Bronze Age, this whole area was inhabited by the Illyrians. The Greeks colonized the Adriatic islands in the fourth century BC, and in the third century BC, they spread onto the coast. The Romans gradually infiltrated first as protectors of the Greeks and later through direct conflicts with the Illyrians in order to take over the whole territory.
