FILIPPO II E ANFIPOLI NELLA PROPAGANDA MACEDONE E ANTIMACEDONE
PHILIP II OF MACEDON AND AMPHIPOLIS IN THE PRO-MACEDONIAN AND ANTI-MACEDONIAN PROPAGANDA
Languages of publication
In 357 Philip of Macedon took Amphipolis against Athens 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.
