In the time of Greek colonization of our islands, Greeks were threatened by Illyrians. They called for help the Romans fleet. The queen Teuta escaped in fear and hided on Lastovo – the most important illyrian stronghold. Teuta’s deity was cult of the snake. While there were on the island all of their power, and it is well known that snakes represented fertility and protection, they passed on to the island Lastovo. Snakes were so grateful to the island that become their shelter that they rest without its poison.
