Ancient Years 168 B.C.

In 334 B.C., the son of Philippos, Alexandros the Big, king of Macedonia and undeniable sovereign of all Greece will make his big expedition against the Persians of M. Asia. In 323 B.C., he will die in Varvilona. Kassandros did not go to the big expedition in the M. Asia, but he remained in Macedonia. Later, after the assembly of "Successors" in Syria (321 B.C.), Kassandros became chiliarch of the Macedonian cavalry in Asia. When Antipatros died (319 B.C.) Kassandros turned against the new souvereign. However in the battle of Pidnas , Kassandros defeated Olympiada and condemned her to death. His action however created big reactions in Macedonia, where the achievements of Big Alexandros, son of Olympiada, had already become a legend with epic dimensions. Under this reality, in order to appear likeable in the Macedonian aristocracy, Kassandros founded Thessalonica.
