During the second Illyrian war in 219 BC, Demetrius of Pharos, after expelling all his Illyrian opponents from Dimale, fortified the city against an imminent Roman attack and left to defend Pharos. The city was of uncertain foundation, Greek or Illyrian. According to N. G. L. Hammond, it might have been founded by Pyrrhus I of Epirus or settlers from Apollonia. M. B. Hatzopoulos believes that the -probably- non-Greek name of the city, the lack of any Greek founding legends associated with it and the mixed (colonial Greek and Greek from Epirus, along with non-Greek) onomastics of its inhabitants create the impression of a later introduction of the Greek element, via gradual hellenization from Epirus and Apollonia, in what was originally a possibly Parthinian settlement.
