An ancient port city on the coast of Thrace, Neapolis (modern Kavalla in the Decentralized Administration of Macedonia and Thrace in Greece) was probably founded from Thasos in the seventh century CE. It served as the port for Philippi in Hellenistic and Roman times, and was refortified by Justinian in the sixth century CE.
