Pella supplanted Aigai as the capital of the Macedonian state at the turn of the 5th and 4th centuries BC and soon evolved into a major political, economic and cultural centre in Greece. The birthplace of Alexander the Great, Pella reached its peak during the Hellenistic period. The rich archaeological finds, notably the palace complex, temples and sumptuous private houses, provide a wealth of information about the city’s layout, architecture and economic life. The mosaic floors and the wall-paintings, rare surviving samples of ancient Greek painting, attest to the prosperity of the city and its inhabitants. Pella fell to the Romans in 168/167 BC and began to lose importance once the seat of the Roman province of Macedonia, created in 148 BC, was transferred to Thessaloniki. Pella was destroyed by an earthquake, most probably in the early 1st century BC.
Greek collectible gold proof coin with a face value of 50 euros, for the Cultural Heritage of Cycladic Culture, maximum number of 1,000 pieces, Bank of Greece mint, issued in 2014. The Cycladic Civilisation is the earliest important civilisation to emerge during the Bronze Age in Greece, with remarkable achievements dating as far back as 3200 B.C. The Cyclades inhabitants soon organised themselves into thriving settlements that benefited from sea trade and the abundance of valuable raw materials such as obsidian (Milos) and marble (Paros). The austere landscape of the small Cycladic islands gave rise to a civilisation characterised by abstraction and stark simplicity. The numerous archaeological artefacts unearthed on the islands include the world-famous Cycladic figurines, which influenced modern art. The Cycladic Civilisation influenced the Minoan Civilisation in its early phase and contributed to the cultural flourishing of Crete and Mycenaean Greece in the Bronze Age. The prehistoric city of Akrotiri on the island of Santorini, perfectly preserved for having been buried for thousands of years under volcanic ash, provides a window into Cycladic Civilisation in its later phase.
