Even Bonfinius, a historian at the court of Matthias Corvinus, wrote that Sirmium was named after the leader of the Illyrian tribal Tribal, Sir, whose name was Latinized in Sirmus. Thus the name of the settlement appeared as early as the 4th century BC. n. e. In the second opinion, the name comes from the leader of the Celtic tribe of Taurisk, also from the 4th century BC. n. e. The root of the word seems to originate from the Sanskrit word "sr" meaning flow, in this case "water flow", "flowing", similar to the root of the word "ser", which in the Old Indian form means drip, from which comes the Latin form of serum. The Illyrian word "cheese" is probably a reduced degree of the same word from which Sir-m-ium originated. The dating of this, Latinized name, is in any case related to the very beginning of the 1st century AD and the arrival of the Romans in the small and prosperous settlement of the Illyrians and Celts on the Sava coast. The name Sirmium is related to the Sava River, Latin Savum.
