The founders of Ancient Kassope in the first half of the 4th century BC. chose the location carefully. A naturally fortified location, at an altitude of 650 meters, under the steep rocks of Mount Zalogos and oriented towards the well-being of the residents.
Kassopi has impressive ancient architecture, as it is built with the Hippodamian system and is divided into 20 parallel streets, the “narrows”. The Kassopeans, a quintessentially continental race, created a great economic and commercial center, with a civil market, rectory, two theaters, a hostel, temples of worship, and its own mint. Especially the great ancient theater of Kassope is a real work of art. The city was destroyed in 167 BC . by the Romans and was completely deserted in 31 BC. when the remaining inhabitants were forcibly transferred as settlers to the newly founded Roman city of Ancient Nicopolis.
