The island of Euboea under Roman rule

In 191 BC Euboea fell to the Romans and the period of Roman rule started for which we possess only bits of literary evidence. Various relevant inscriptions that have survived make up for this lack of information. During Roman occupation Euboea suffered serious disasters while at the same time many Euboean cities went through periods of prosperity, especially Chalkida and Aedipsos, famous for its healing waters and baths.
