Via Egnatia in Philippi

A stretch of the Via Egnatia in Philippi (Greece). The Via Egnatia crossed the Roman provinces of Illyricum, Macedonia, and Thrace, running through territory that is now part of modern Albania, the Republic of Macedonia, Greece, and European Turkey. It was built by a Roman senator Gnaeus Egnatius, who served as praetor with the powers of proconsul in the newly conquered province of Macedonia in the late 140s BCE.
