Eth. TAULA´NTII (Eth. Ταυλάντιοι, Ptol. 3.13.3), a people of Roman Illyria, in the neighbourhood of Epidamnus and Dyrrachium. In ancient times they were a powerful tribe, possessing several cities, and governed by their own kings, but subsequently they were reduced to subjection by the kings of Illyria, and at the time when the Romans waged war with Teuts they had sunk into insignificance. (Cf. Thuc. 1.24; Arrian, Arr. Anab. 1.5; Mela, 2.3; Liv. 45.26; Plin. Nat. 3.22. s. 26.) Aristotle relates that they had a method of preparing mead from honey. (Mir. Ausc. t. ii. p. 716.)
