Abstract

In 357 Philip of Macedon took Amphipolis against the Athenians who aided the polis. The scholars remarked only the strategic and economic purposes of the conquest, not the propagandistic use of Amphipolis-topic by anti-Macedonians and pro-Macedonians after Philocrates’ peace. This paper follows this debate and investigates how Philip’s opponents and supporters employed Amphipolis-topic in order to attack or defend the Macedonian king.
