The Istroyan civilization was an ancient society that expanded from the eastern coast of Ixnay Proper down the coastline of the continent and the neighboring islands including possibly Istroyan city-states in Southern Levantia. The name of the civilization is derived from the city-state of Istroîon in Eastern Ixnay founded in the 23rd century BCE. The influence of Istroyan culture spread across the world and is theorized to have heavily influence Latin culture and early society which frequently interacted with the Istroyans in both commerce and warfare. An immense maritime power, the golden age of the civilization lasted from c. 1500 BCE to 500 CE, the decline slightly precipitated the rise of the Republic of Caphiria which engaged in major trade wars which crippled Istroyan city-states. This combined with infighting and foreign invasion from barbarian tribes to the west led to the collapse of Istroyan civilization on the mainland before 200 BCE. City-states on the islands east of the continent continued to survive into the common era, but attacks by Bergendii Bladerunners between the 7th and 9th centuries CE devastated the remaining city-states. The last city-state to fall to the Bergendii was Apamos, located in present day Monteangelo, which fell in 848 CE signalling the end of Istroyan civilization.
