Pautalia - A settlement in Thrace
Pautalia was founded as a Thracian settlement in the 5th-4th centuries BC, and the Romans developed it into an important stronghold, balneological resort and trade junction in the 1st century AD, when it was administratively part of Macedonia.

It became a major religious and administrative centre of the Byzantine Empire, and subsequently the Second Bulgarian Empire after Kaloyan conquered the area between 1201 and 1203.

Modern location: Kyustendil, Bulgaria
