Soon after the accession of Perseus, the Thracian king Abrupolis invaded Macedonia and threatened Amphipolis ( see Liv_42.41 ). The reprisals of Perseus against Abrupolis were one of the reasons given by the Romans for declaring war on Perseus in 171 B.C. ( see Syll_643 ).
King Perseus, son of king Philippos, dedicated these spoils from the campaigns in Thrace to Artemis Tauropolos.
The people of Amphipolis dedicated them to Artemis Tauropolos, when the politarchs were Timonides son of Asklepiades and Mestylos son of Metrodoros.
