Amphipolis was founded in 436 B.C.by the Athenians, and it ceased to strike autonomous coins when it became subject to Philip of Macedon in 358 B.C. The coins of this city are remarkable for the intensity of expression. The torch on the reverse was used in the local torch races. Amphipolis is a municipality in the Serres regional unit of Greece. The seat of the municipality is Rodolivos. It was an important ancient Greek polis and later a Roman city whose considerable remains can still be seen.
