See also: Pangée
The Pangée (in Greek old Παγγαῖον / Paggaĩon ) is a mountainous solid mass of Eastern Macedonia (Greece) separating in the south the coast from the Égée from the plain from Philips-Drama in north.
This mountain was famous in the Antiquité for its money and gold mines: the Athenian Tyrant Pisistrate, exiled in the middle of sixth century BC, had sufficiently grown rich there for raising mercenaries for his return to Athens (Aristote, Ath. 15). The sights of Athens on the gold of Pangée must belong to the reasons of the attempt at Athenian colonization carried out in 465 av. J. - C. in the area of the Strymon to the place known as of New the Roads (Ennéa-Odoi), which leads to a bloody failure: the colonists were massacred by the Thrace S.
