This would be well over 400 years after the Croatian tribes had already migrated south according to the various sources, especially the sources which correlate and describe the early migrating Croats being called Goths as well as Slavs also.

(Hrvati) Both of these sources are also extremely similar to the accounts of the migrating Croatian tribes to Dalmatia, Pannonia and Illyricum in De Administrando Imperio) It is also interesting to note that the medieval Polans tribe is how and from where the later Poles/Poland name originated from, a word denoting "field", and that this same Old Slavic word has the same meaning in the Croatian word "polje" (fields) which again is even used regarding the very red and white alternate "fields" in the modern day Croatian chequy COA. (25 crvenih i bijelih polja) In about 850 CE a list of western Slavic speaking tribes was written down by an anonymous author in a text known today as the Bavarian Geographer.
