Vis (Croatian pronunciation: [v̞îːr]; Greek: Ἴσσα - Issa; Italian, Venetian: Lissa) is the most outerly lying larger Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, and is part of the Central Dalmatian group of islands, with an area of 90.26 km² and a population of 3,617 (as of 2001[update]). Of all the inhabited Croatian islands, it is the farthest from the coast.[1][2] The highest peak of Vis is called Hum, 587 m high.[1]There are two towns and municipalities on the island, Vis (1,960 [3] inhabitants in the municipality) and Komiža (it. Comisa) (1,677),[4] both located on the seacoast. There are smaller settlements on the island's interior: Podselje, Marinje zemlje, Podšpilje, and Podstražje.[5]Vis was inhabited by the time of the Neolithic period. In the 4th century BC, the Greek tyrant of Syracuse, Dionysius the Elder, founded the colony Issa[6] on the island. Later, it became an independent city-state, and even minted its own money and founded its own colonies elsewhere. In the first century BC, the island was held by the Liburnians.[7] In the 4th century BC Syracusan Greeks colonised the Island[8] Its importance in the region ended with the first Illyro-Roman war (29-219 BC).
