Philippopolis - A settlement in Thrace
Philippopolis was a major city in Thracia, which was possibly founded by Philip II of Macedon before being conquered by the Romans in 72 BC.

It was seized by the Roman general Marcus Lucullus but was soon restored to Thracian control. In 46 CE, the city was finally incorporated into the Roman Empire by emperor Claudius; it served as capital of the province of Thrace and gained city status in the late 1st century.

In 250 CE, the whole city was burned down by the Goths who were led by their ruler Cniva. Many of its citizens, 100,000 according to Ammianus Marcellinus, died or were taken captive. It took a century and hard work to recover the city. However, it was destroyed again by Attila's Huns in 441-442 AD and by the Goths of Teodoric Strabo in 471 AD.
