Abstract

The chapter focuses on the findings of a rescue excavation on the southern slope of the acropolis in Philippi, where the Archeological Museum of Philippi is located. The ruins of Roman buildings came to light, alongside an unknown, to that time, cardo of Via Egnatia. Both the architectural remnants, including floors, ducts and pipelines, water reservoirs, wells etc., as well as the road’s pavement itself suffered posterior transformations and additions, in parts with mud-built walls. According to findings such as depots, storage vessels, marble pieces and rough handmade pottery that coexists with ceramics of advanced technique, the dating of the various contexts spans from the Late Roman era and the so called “dark ages” to the Late Byzantine period, marking the transition from the roman colonia to the byzantine city of Philippi.
