 Taken from above article;- 

Sometime during the late Bronze Age

 in Italy (11th-10th century BC) 

Illyrian-speaking tribes from the region 

of the Balkans bordering the Adriatic Sea

 began crowding into the “heel” of 

Italy (modern Apulia).  

Three tribes of these peoples, called

 Danui, Messapii and Peucetii, settled

 into the area and founded what

 historians now collectively refer to

 as Iapygian civilization. These peoples 

spoke Messapian, an Indo-European

 language. 

They reached the height of their ceramic

 production about the 5th-6th century.  

This piece ex- U.K. Ancient Art seller, 

prior to that was part of a Belgo-German 

collection. Certificate of Authenticity included.
