Historical background


MACEDONIA - LETE

(Sixth - fifth century BC

Lete was on the territory of Amphaxitis above Therma (Thessalonica), but the city was without importance in ancient times and it is doubtful that it could monetize. However, the city was placed on the strategic road linking the mine Pangaea in the hinterland.
