Population movements

Bottice Region

Region of the peninsula of Chalcidice, which was named after the Bottiaeans (people of thracian origin), who inhabited it after the occupation of their land by the Macedonians. By the 4th century B.C. the name Bottice ceased to exist (encyclopedia P.L.B.).

Eretria colonized the cities situated round Pallene and Athos, and Chalcis colonized the cities that were subject to Olynthus, which later were treated outrageously by Philip.
