Philippi

Philippi was named after Philip II of Macedon, most famous as the father of Alexander the Great, but its main fame is from later years. Here in 42BC a battle was fought between the assassins of Julius Caesar and the future emperor Augustus, that saw the death knell of the Roman Republic. Almost 100 years later St Paul came here to preach. The evocative ruins include an ancient theatre and Christian basilicas.
