In this paper the considered period was from the Roman siege of Nesactium in 178. B. C. to the final conquests in the great pannonian - dalmatian uprising and the capture of the fortress Andetrium in 9. A. D. Events and military actions have been followed in the area of Illyricum, the historical area which is not very easy to describe because of its constant growth and transformation throughout history. Primary goal of this paper was to analyze, systematize and quantify news about Roman siege warfare and siege tactics in this area, based on Greek and Roman historical narratives, supported by some archaeological findings. The paper is consisted of foreword and introduction, followed by six consecutive chapters in which the following topics were discussed: historical background, theories about topographical locations of mentioned sieges, literary and material sources, short history on research of this subject, short introductory of Roman siege warfare and finally the individual analysis of the each siege mentioned. In the process, nine sieges were thoroughly interpreted; profound interpretation of certain events and problems was made, thus providing the principle conclusion about siege warfare in the time of Roman conquest of Illyricum in the considered period. The paper is concluded by general conclusion, followed by short summary and bibliographical notes.
