General: The Roman province of Macedonia was officially established in 146 BC, after the Roman general Quintus Caecilius Metellus defeated Andriscus of Macedon in 148 BC, and after the four client republics established by Rome in the region were dissolved. The province incorporated Epirus Vetus, Thessaly, and parts of Illyria and Thrace. The word "Koinon" means "common" and in this context is used to describe The Koinon of the Macedonians (Κοινόν Μακεδόνων) which was the commonwealth of all Macedonian communities at the time.
