According to tradition, Traianos (106/7 A.D.) on his way to and from war for Dakia created “agores”. He founded schools, libraries, baths (thermae). The foundation of Traianoupoli fell within the reconstruction programme of the Roman state; there is written testimony for the location of Traianoupoli by the geographer Klaudios Ptolemy of Alexander in his work “Geographia”.
