After the defeat of Perseus at the battle of Pydna in 168 BC, the Romans divided Macedon into four separate autonomous administrative regions (meride). The first meris lay east of the Strymon with its capital at Amphipolis. To keep the districts under firm control, the merides were forbidden from trading with each other, mining their gold and silver or raising armies.
