The author discusses previous views that the eponym
Vranjica corresponds to the island of Hurania in
the waters off of Salona, as stated by Thomas the Archdeacon
in the thirteenth century. By analyzing historical
sources, he ascertains the reasons why this contention
is not possible, which is additionally confirmed by
the continuity of the name Vranjic since the eleventh
century. He identifies Hurania as Durana from the tenth
century and Doranua from the fourteenth century. He
links the three Latinized toponyms with the Dvorine
site, which was on one of the islands in the Jadro River.
Based on the fact that already in the tenth century this
site bore the designation Dvorine, the author points to
the existence of a previous structure. He uses the construction,
or perhaps restoration, of a church dedicated
to St. Martin at the time as the basis for his hypothesis
that it was precisely here, in the Palace of St. Martin,
that the peace between Prince Mislav and the Venetian
Doge Pietro Tradenico was concluded in 839.
