Egnatia Way

By

Definition: The Egnatia Way (or Via Egnatia) was a major Roman thoroughfare, built in the second century BC as a military route connecting the southern Adriatic coast to the northern Aegean sea. Recent work by Michele Fasolo of the Università di Skopie is concentrated on defining, describing and updating the information about this crucial Roman road, and included a catalog of human settlements, remains of villas, warehouses, tombs, milestones, epigraphs, stretches of road, and bridges.
