Modern Description: Anthemous was region that belonged to the Kingdom of Macedonia. During the 4th century BCE it was disputed between Macedonians and Chalkidians. The town probably was founded during that period. Arrian implies it provided Alexander the Great with a cavalry squadron.
Situated near the homonymous river in a very fertile valley. An extensive cemetery of 500 graves (570-early 5th century BC) has been excavated outside the village of Aghia Paraskevi. Outstanding among the finds are the weapons and jewellery, ten Chian ceramic chalices, local imitations of Attic black-figure vases and local grey ware. Some pieces are exhibited in the Thessaloniki Archaeological Museum.
A double Macedonian tomb (late 4th century BC) with its two-leaf marble door intact (now in the Thessaloniki Archaeological Museum) was also excavated.
