Amantia

In the Commune of Sevaster is included the Ploçe village where is located one of the most ancient castle with rich archaeological and historic value

The ancient city of Amantia is located in the ancient ruins of the village Ploçe. Founded at the end of the V century BC. The Amantia’s acropolis was fortified and has a perimeter 2200m. The city was extended in the slopes around with a surface of 15 Ha. In the III century BC Amantia was the economic, political and cultural centre of the municipality of Koinoni, Mathosanaj, Çerje and Haderaj with strategic functions. Amantia was part of the Epirus union until the year 230 BC. After the dissociation it started to produce coins with the name of Amantia which circulated in and outside the territory of the municipality. After the Roman invasion it conserved certain autonomy in the road between Apollonia and Epirus. Apart the outermost walls of the acropolis and the gates are discovered the Amantia’s stadium, the temple of Aferdita, and the vestiges of a theatre. The attention of the researcher was attracted by the stadium with 3000 seats which served for the games (races, wrestling, and boxing.). It has the horseshoes shape with stairs and the racecourse in the middle.
