Augustus, 16 January 27 B.C. - 19 August 14 A.D., Koinon of Thessaly
After the end of Second Macedonian War, at the ceremony of the Isthmian Games in 196 B.C., Flamininus, stated a decree: "The Senate of Rome and Titus Quinctius the pro-consul, having overcome King Philip and the Macedonians, leave the following peoples free, without garrisons and subject to no tribute and governed by their countries' laws - the Corinthians, Phocians, Locrians, Euboeans, Phthiotic Achaeans, Magnesians, Thessalians, and Perrhaibians." Rome established Thessaly as a koinon, a federal league. For 50 years, the Thessalian League restored stable local government in a region that had suffered more than 150 years of chaos and turmoil. After 146 B.C., the league lost much of its autonomy and authority when Thessaly became part of the province of Macedonia.
