The Thasians revolted in 465 B.C. but the Athenians retook the island, destroyed the Thasian fleet, and the walls of the city. In 404 B.C., the Spartans occupied the island.

Around 340, Philip II of Macedonia took control of the island, absorbed it into his Macedonian Empire and seized its mines for his own coinage. In 197 B.C., the Rome took control.
