Founded by the Athenians in 437 BC, it was later conquered by Philip II of Macedon.
Situated on the eastern bank of the river Strymon, Amphipolis enjoyed a prominent position as a trading hub and a military outpost. In addition, its prime location near the coast allowed it to serve as a gateway between Greece and Thrace, facilitating trade and fostering cultural exchange.

Amphipolis was renowned for its impressive fortifications, including walls, towers, and a protective moat, highlighting its military significance. The city boasted splendid architecture within its borders, featuring grand public buildings, temples, and theaters that showcased its inhabitants’ artistic and cultural prowess.
