Istria (/'istri.a/; formerly known as Șistria, Șistriia, Ши́стрїѧ, Shistri/Shistra; Eganian: Xistri) is the oldest fortified city on the Iviran Coast and the first capital of the Antharian Kingdom. Its recorded history begins around 500 BC, when the area was first settled by Hellanesians, although the earliest human presence in this area starts somewhere between the 7th and 4th millennium BC.
