Epirus had great religious significance due to the presence of the shrine and oracle at Dodona – second only to the oracle at Delphi.
Beginning in 370 BC, the Molossian Aeacidae dynasty built a centralized state in Epirus and began expanding their power. The dynasty ended in 232 BC, but Epirus remained a substantial power, unified as the Epirote League, a federal state. In 167 BC, the League fell to the Roman Republic.
