The city of Philippoi was founded by Thasos in 360/359 BC under the name Krenides (Springs). It was on the Macedonian/Thracian coast to the west of Thasos, a site well calculated to control the gold and silver mines of the area. Shortly thereafter, in 356, the city was conquered by Philip II who renamed it in his own honor. He furnished it with colonists, drained some of the nearby marshes, and gave it full autonomy within the Kingdom of Macedonia. It was only under full royal control beginning with Philip V well over a century later. Perhaps the best known event in the city's history was the battle that took place there in 42 BC when Antony and Octavian destroyed the forces of Brutus and Cassius Longinus. It then became a Roman colony, ultimately Colonia Augusta Iulia Philippensis after 27 BC. The city had a thriving Christian community and St. Paul visited several times. In 619 there was a massive earthquake from which the city never recovered.
