Regestum

The eastern borders of the province of Istria (and the Kingdom of Italy / Holy Roman Empire) according to the 10th-century work customarily titled De administrando imperio and ascribed to Eastern Roman Emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus.

Date
Customarily dated to a period between 948 and 952; however, chapter 30, which contains the brief description of the eastern borders of Istria hereby edited, is a later addition, written by an anonymous author and inserted to “correct” the historical narrative featured in chaps. 29 and 31; the composition of chapter 30 is dated to the second half of the 10th century, most probably during the age of Croatian King Stephen Držislav (969–997).
