Pella, a small town on the shores of Thermaikos Gulf, has become the capital Macedonia at the end of the 5th c. e.g. . It became the most important political, economic and cultural center of all Greece. The choice of location of the new capital was probably of the desicion by King Archelaus mainly for political and economic reasons abd due to the fertility of the location. It was close to the new territories that had been annexed to the Macedonian kingdom.
But most of all , it was coastal, providing easy access to all directions. That helped both the development of trade as well as the expansionist policy of the Macedonian kings. The key point of the city’s economy has been the large market (the largest square market of the ancient of the Greek world), with the production laboratories and the shops of sale of ceramic products, metal objects, but also edible products channeled to the surrounding areas.
The residential part of the city was around the market. Its road construction of Ancient Pella was very contemporary for those years: building blocks, which defined by roads intersecting vertical, well-studied systems water supply and sewerage! Its inhabitants could could be proud to have lived in a city- ahead of its time. The two-storey private houses with peristyles reflect the wealth and prosperity of the ancient inhabitants of Pella. The reference point is the mosaic floors with the mythological representations exhibited in the new Archaeological Museum of Pella, such as its capture Eleni, the Amazon War, the hunt for a deer!
