 Ancient Orraon (before the mid-4th cent. BC - 168 BC), Ammotopos   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The ancient settlement of Ammotopos is identified with the ancient town of Orraon, established before the middle of the 4th century BC by the Molossoi.
The particular, fortress-like character of Orraon is proved by the lack of communal spaces, by the water supply of the settlement from large basins, and also by the solid walls which were strengthened during a posterior phase with towers and additional walls.
Moreover, the fact that this small settlement was one of the four cities of Molossia that tried to resist the Roman legions of Anicius in 168 BC, supports the theory that Orraon was a town-fortress, controlling the western pass to the Amvrakikos bay.

 Roman to Julian Conversion: Analysis AUC 586 = 168 BC
Roman to Julian Conversion: Analysis AUC 586 = 168 BC An absolute astronomical synchronism is given by Livy 44.37.8 which describes a lunar eclipse on a.d.
From the synchronism known for A.U.C., there were 12 intercalations between 190 and 168, 3 of 22 days and 9 of 23, if the Roman civil date of Pydna is correct.
A.U.C. cannot be equated to any Julian date between 26 June and 6 July 168, given the eclipse synchronism for A.U.C. Hence the ultimate source for it must have tied it to the eclipse, regardless of whether the battle was actually fought on the following day.
