Catastrophes of the place

By Romans under Paulus

Polybius says that Paulus, after his subjection of Perseus and the Macedonians, destroyed seventy cities of the Epeirotes most of which, he adds, belonged to the Molossi, and reduced to slavery one hundred and fifty thousand people. (Perseus Project - Strabo, Geography 7.7.3)

By the Illyrians

But when no one paid any attention to them, they first ravaged the country, and after that, when the Molossians drew up against them, there followed a sharp battle in which the Illyrians were victorious and slew more than fifteen thousand Molossians. (Perseus Project - Diodorus Siculus, Library 15.13.3)
