This volume gathers the Proceedings of three Workshops organized by the Department of Greek and Roman Antiquity of the National Hellenic Research Foundation in collaboration with the French School at Athens on the impact of Roman rule on the communities of the north-Aegean area –in broad lines from Pieria to the Thracian Chersonese. In this area –which came under direct Roman control as early as the middle of the 2nd century BC– communities with a different legal status –Greek colonies along the coasts of Chalkidike and Thrace, old cities of the Macedonian kingdom and newly-founded Roman colonies– lived in close proximity to the restless tribes of the north and the client-kingdom of the Thracian hinterland. In this volume well-known scholars and younger researchers, historians and archaeologists from Greece and abroad, exploit the latest achievements of historical and archaeological research, in order to perceive the changes that were deliberately promoted by the Romans or spontaneously provoked as a consequence of their presence in the area
