After the capture of Perseus at Pydna in 168 BC by Paul-Émile, Greece was divided into four republics. Thessaloniki, the ancient Therma, the modern Salonika, received its name in honor of the wife of Cassander, the half-sister of Alexander III the Great in 315 BC The city was the capital the second republic. After the revolt of Andriscus, Macedonia was heavily taxed and treated as a conquered province. Under the Empire, it became a senatorial province.
