Summary/Abstract: Inventory of Pastriç (Paštrik) vilayeti in 1452/53. is the oldest preserved Ottoman source which contains data on former Serbian medieval districts (župas) Altin, Patkovo and Hvosno. It was made as an integral part of Skopje-Bosnian Frontier inventory, one of the largest military and administrative units of the Ottoman Empire. Only 60 villages in the nahiyes of Paštrik, Rudina and Radovina, that belonged to the hass of Mahmud Pasha, Grand Vizier and Rumeli Beylerbeyi, were registrated, as well as 20 villages in the nahiye of Gora that belonged to the sipahis. It is worth mentioning that most of those sipahis were Christians. This valuable source contains data concerning ethnic and confessional structure in the territory south of Djakovica, in between Valbona, Drim and White Drim rivers.
