History of Macedonit the ancient kingdom of Greece

Thessaloniki - Macedonia - Greece - an ancient kingdom of Greece in modern times.

All variations of the city’s name derive from the original (and current) appellation in GreekΘεσσαλονίκη (from Θεσσαλός, Thessalos, and Νίκη, Nike), literally translating to “Thessalian Victory”. The name of the city came from the name of a princess, Thessalonike of Macedon, so named because of her birth on the day of the Macedonian victory at the Battle of Crocus Field.

Founded in 315 BC by Cassander of Macedon, Thessaloniki’s history spans some 2,300 years. An important metropolis by the Roman period, Thessaloniki was the second largest and wealthiest city of the Byzantine Empire. Thessaloniki is home to numerous notable Byzantine monuments, including the Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki, a UNESCOWorld Heritage Site. The city’s main university, Aristotle University, is the largest in Greece 

Florina - Macedonia Greece 

The city’s original Byzantine name, Χλέρινον (Chlérinon, “full of green vegetation”), derives from the Greek word χλωρός (chlōrós, “fresh” or “green vegetation”). The name was sometimes Latinized as Florinon (from the Latin flora, “vegetation” from Greek Floros (φλωρός) in the later Byzantine period, and in early Ottoman documents the forms Chlerina and Florina are both used, with the latter becoming standard after the 17th century. The form with [f] (φλωρός) is a local dialect form of χλωρός in Greek.
