    Hints time!
    1) In this site, a major battle occured, which, I am sure, everyone interested in Roman history knows of.
    2) The prefecture's name, where the ancient ruins are located, has the same name with a type of theatrical representation.
    3) Next to it, there is a stream, where, according to legend, the first European was baptized christian.

    Philippi is correct!
    Hints explanation:
    1) The battle of Philippi, where ANTONIUS ANd Octavius defeated the Ceasar's murderers.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Philippi
    2) The prefecture's name is Drama.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drama_Prefecture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drama,_Greece
    3) Saint Lydia, the supposedly firts vhristian in Europe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lydia_of_Thyatira

    Unfortunately, I can't rep Muizer, so can anybody do it for me?

    Hehe, ain't that Michael Jackson's Ranch "Neverland" or whatever the name was?
    I would rather have a memory that is fair but unfinished than one that goes on to a grievous end.
