PIRUSTAE (Πιροῦσται, Ptol. 2.17.8; Πειροῦσται, Strab. vii. p.314), a people of Illyria, whom the Romans declared free of taxes, because they assisted the latter in subduing Gentius. (Liv. 45.26.) Strabo (l.c.) calls them a Pannonian people. Respecting the position of the Pirustae on the northern frontier of Dassaretia, see Vol. I. p. 755b.
