  Scordisci - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scordisci were, in ancient geography, a war-like tribe inhabiting the southern part of lower Pannonia, comprising parts of the present-day countries Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, between the Savus (Sava), Dravus (Drava) and Danube rivers.
Scordisci started progressing towards Pannonia, settling at the point where Moesia and Balkans end, at the confluence of two rivers, Sava and Danube, where they erected fortresses in Singidunum and Taurunum, founding today's city of Belgrade.
The Scordisci later became subject to the Dacians.

 Singidunum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Singidunum was an ancient Roman city, first settled by the Scordisci in the 3rd century B.C., and later garrisoned and fortified by the Romans who romanized the name.
Known today as Beograd (Belgrade), the capital city of Serbia, the city is one of the oldest in Europe.
The first evidence of primitive fortification came later in the 3rd century BC, with the settlement of the Celtic or Thraco-Celtic tribe, the Scordisci, who picked the strategic hilltop at the meeting of the two rivers as the basis for their habitation.

SCORDISCI, in ancient geography, a Celtic tribe inhabiting the southern part of lower Pannonia between the Savus, Dravus and Danuvius.
Some Roman authorities consider them a Thracian stock, because of their admixture with an older Thraco-Illyrian population.

 2. THE DACIAN KINGDOM (András Mócsy)
Early sources identify the Scordisci as Rome's sole or principal enemy in the Balkans; the Dardani were seldom mentioned, and then only as one of the Thracian tribes allied with the Scordisci against Rome.
The Scordisci were predominant in the Sava valley, and they kept the Pannonic tribes, who lived between the Sava and the Drava rivers, in subjection until ca.
In the event, the only tangible evidence of this conquest is that the Scordisci, defeated by Burebista, became his allies in subsequent campaigns, and that the Dacians established a lasting presence south of the Danube, in the northern part of today's Serbia.

This could be explained by the several tribes that inhabited Pannonia like the Breuci and the Scordisci.
The lack of central authority implies that these tribes were independent of each other and not bound to a dominant tribe, which would leave Pannonia as only a place name, nonetheless, those who did occupy this region were called Pannonians.
The ancient writers refer to the Scordisci as a bloodthirsty people engaging in human sacrifice and drinking out of human skulls.

The former lived between two rivers that empty into the Ister — the Noarus, which flows past Segestica, and the Margus (by some called the Bargus), whereas the Little Scordisci lived on the far side of this river, and their territory bordered on that of the Triballi and the Mysi.
The Scordisci also held some of the islands; and they increased to such an extent that they advanced as far as the Illyrian, Paeonian, and Thracian mountains; accordingly, they also took possession of most of the islands in the Ister.
After the country of the Scordisci, along the Ister, comes that of the Triballi and the Mysi (whom I have mentioned before), and also the marshes of that part of what is called Little Scythia which is this side the Ister (these too I have mentioned).

 Pannonia - Province of the Roman Empire
From the 4th century BCE it was invaded by various Celtic tribes, the largest of whom were the Carni, Scordisci and Taurisci.
The Celtic Scordiscis and Dardanians posed an obstacle to this advance.
The Scordisci, Breucis, Carni and Dardanians were early enemies of Roman expansion, but later would play an important role in defending the territory from Germanic incursions.

In Gaul, the Cimbri were defeated by Marcus Junius Silanus, the colleague of Quintus Metellus, the Scordisci and Triballi in Macedonia by Minutius Rufus, and the Lusitani in Spain by Servilius Caepio; and two triumphs were celebrated on account of Jugurtha; the first by Metellus, the second by Marius.

 Appian's History of Rome: The Illyrian Wars
The Scordisci, having been reduced to extreme weakness in the same way, and having suffered much at a later period in war with the Romans, took refuge in the islands of the same river.
In the course of time some of them returned and settled on the confines of Pannonia, and thus it happens that a tribe of the Scordisci still remains in Pannonia.
In like manner the Ardiaei, who were distinguished for their maritime power, were finally destroyed by the Autarienses, whose land forces were stronger, but whom they had often defeated.

The Romans, thirty-two years after their first encounter with the Celts, having fought with them at intervals since that time, now, under the leadership of Lucius Scipio, made war against the Illyrians, on account of this temple-robbery, as they [the Romans] now held sway over the Greeks and the Macedonians.
