 PRESIDIO

PRESIDIO

Nothing is known of Presidio in addition to the name listed in the Tabula Peuntigeriana as one of the stations on the way from Stobi to Scupi. Judging by the distance given in the Tabula Peuntigeriana Presidio seems to conform to the site of the ancient city Psaphara in Paraxia, Philippoupolis in Parorbelia and Antigonia in Paeonia, all ubicated at Kneže near Sveti Nikole.

PRESIDIO

It is assumed that Presidio must have got its name commemorating its past of some city of great importance. The city of Presidio shared the same fate as Stobi because all invaders from the north had to pass through it on the road to Stobi. In 479 Theodoric the Great invaded Stobi and laid the city in ruins and probably Presidio shared the same fate. Later after the invasion of Balkans by the Slavs and Avars, Presidio must have been forgotten forever.
