Illyrian Identity

A very interesting way to look at the identity of Illyrians, below. Seems quite similar to how most nations in the Balkans area feel about themselves today.
In general, the Illyrians have tended to be recognized from a negative standpoint in that they were manifestly not Celts, Dacians or Thracians or Greek or Macedonians, their neighbours on the north, east and south respectively. (John Wilkes, The Illyrians, p3)
