Amphipolis (: Amphípolis) was an ancient Greek city in the region once inhabited by the Edoni people in the present-day region of Central Macedonia. It was built on a raised plateau overlooking the east bank of the river Strymon where it emerged from Lake Cercinitis, about 3 m. from the Aegean Sea. Founded in 437 BC, the city was finally abandoned in the 8th century AD. The present village Amfipoli , named after the ancient city, occupies the site. It is a municipality in the Serres regional unit of Macedonia, Greece. The seat of the municipality is Rodolivos.
