 ===Olynthus=== ===Olynthus===
-This eponymous city is named after its founder Olynthus, son of Herakles. ​ The city is in the far north-east of Greece and its territory borders Macedon. It originally occupied the southern of two large hills that dominate the local landscape. Over the last fifty years many people from other towns and cities have been persuaded to move to Olynthus. The newcomers built a new city on the northern hill, making Olynthus a city of two halves. The older parts on the southern hill contain the civic areas such as the agora while the northern hill is residential including the richest villas in the region. Perched on high hills and protected by walls, the polis is easy to defend.+This eponymous city is named after its founder Olynthus, son of Herakles.

 A growing population has been turned into power. The city is the leader of the Chalkidian League, a group of thirty cities in the surrounding region that have allied themselves against outside interference. What few people know is that the migration that Olynthus enjoys began at the behest of the Macedonian king Perdiccas II. He arranged it as part of his plotting against Athens, aiming to create a powerful city for him to control and prevent the poleis of the east coast from unifying. This backfired as the power of the enlarged city grew rapidly and he was never able to dominate it. A growing population has been turned into power.
