The Chalkidian League was formed when several cities on the Chalkidiki broke away from Athenian rule early in the Peloponnesian War of 431-404. Its capital was the newly founded city of Olynthos, strategically located on a plain that linked the Pallene and Sithonia peninsulas and home to the mint of its beautiful silver coinage. The League became a major regional power in the 4th century BC, but it was dissolved in 348 BC after Philip II of Macedon captured and destroyed its capital, Olynthos.
