Macedonia was also a battle-scene in Roman times. Two of the most famous are the battles of Pydna and the battles of Philippi.
In Pydna, located 60 km from Thessaloniki, the Romans in 168 BC defeated the Macedonians. The phalanx here fought its last fight and perished to a man. The battle proved decisive, and the following year, Macedonian king Perseus was dethroned and made captive. The battle also extinguished Macedonia as a threat to its neighbors. The empire created by Alexander the Great had fallen.
