Abstract

For a long time the study of the evolution of the Roman landscape of Caonia, the northern region of Epirus, has been overlooked and limited essentially to the territory of Butrint, while the wider studies of this region have often favoured the Hellenistic age. The research of the last few years, however, has opened up new study perspectives that allow to re-evaluate the development of cities such as Phoinike, Butrint and their territories especially in the early Roman age. Similar historical vicissitudes are also observed in other sites in this region. In the early and middle imperial Roman age (at the beginning of the 1st and of the 2nd century AD), there are important developments in urban areas and in the surrounding landscape (such as in the viability and in the agricultural infrastructures). But these dynamics are rooted in the important changes that took place after the end of the Macedonian wars in the 2nd century BC, and maybe before, when Rome looks for the first time in this area of peripheral Greece at the end of the 3rd century BC.
