The inscription of Phoinike, mentioning one Ἀρβαῖος (3rd century –2nd century BC);
The epitaph of Gornja Solnja (end of 1st century - beginning of 2nd century);
Polybius (c. 208 - c. 125 BC) ; In his work The Histories, Polybius reported the first diplomatic contacts between the Romans and Illyrians.
Claudius Ptolemy (c. 90 - 168), as reported in one of his key sources, the Greco-Phoenician cartographer Marinus of Tyre (1st century) ; Ptolemy is the earliest writer in whose works the name of the Albanians has been distinctly recognized. He mentions (3.13.23) a tribe called Albani (Ἀλβανοί) and a town Albanopolis (Ἀλβανόπολις), in the region lying to the East of the Ionian sea; and from the names of places with which Albanopolis is connected, it appears clearly to have been in the Southern part of the Illyrian territory, and in modern Albania.
Annales Ragusini Anonymi ; an identification of Albania with Croatia Alba has been rejected 
Stephanus of Byzantium (end of the 5th century - beginning of the 6th century) ;
The two terms are popularly interpreted as "Land of the Eagles" and "Children of the Eagles".
It's fine that this has 2 pretty good sources but it obviously doesn't mean that, isn't considered that, and doesn't work like that in English. Provide a gloss of whatever Albanian/Turkish/Greek/Slavic/&c. form gave rise to the idea. Probably best to mark it as a folk etymology directly or via a link for the words "popularly interpreted". — LlywelynII 04:16, 10 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Approximately 3,500 different species of plants can be found in Albania which refers principally to a Mediterranean and Eurasian character. The country maintains a vibrant tradition of herbal and medicinal practices (This links to the incorrect article, linking to a Doctor Who show rather than the page on medicinal practices). At the minimum 300 plants growing locally are used in the preparation of herbs and medicines. The trees within the forests are primarily made up of fir, oak, beech and pine.

Done though I wrote "Balkans" as that's the name of the article and per that article's commentary that it really isn't a peninsula even though it's commonly referred to as one. Largoplazo (talk) 11:44, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
User:Iaof2017, could you please elaborate on your reversion of my having located Albania, per the above request, in the Balkans? Your edit summary reads "as in other balkan countries articles", but there's no general principle on Wikipedia that a given edit may either be made to every similar article or to none at all.
