"The Beginning of the Legend of Alexander the Great"

Amphipolis - Philippi Kavalas - Kavala In the age of the Macedonians, Amphipolis emerged as a powerful city of the Macedonian kingdom with internal autonomy and with significant economic and cultural flourishing. Excavations have revealed much of the walls and some of the sanctuaries and private and public buildings of the city. After the conquest of Macedonia by the Romans (168 BC), Amphipolis was designated the capital of the First Part of Macedonia.

The Roman Era is for Amphipolis a period of prosperity within the context of the Roman world empire. Station of the Egnatia Road and capital of a rich hinterland, the city is developing economically and culturally. Of course, it has known destruction and looting, but with the support of the Roman emperors, especially Augustus and Hadrian, it remained one of the important urban centers of Macedonia until late antiquity. The heyday of the city is reflected in the monumental buildings with their mosaic floors and frescoes

Philippi was an ancient city of Eastern Macedonia with the original name of Krinides, located in the current prefecture of Kavala. The Apostle Paul founded the first Christian Church on European soil in Philippi. The area of Philippi has been inhabited continuously by indigenous people since the Neolithic Age at least. The history of the Philippi settlement begins in 360/359 BC when settlers from Thassos found the first city, Krinides. When in 356 BC they are threatened by the Thracians, they ask for the help of Philip II (father of Alexander the Great). He, foreseeing the economic and strategic importance of the city, occupies it, fortifies it and renames it Philippi.
