In 42 BCE, the city was the site of a battle fought between the armies of the Hidden Ones Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus - who had been responsible for the Assassination of Julius Caesar - against the forces of Mark Antony and Octavian. While Cassius was killed in the battle, Brutus fled and eventually committed suicide to escape capture.
Following Brutus' death, his fellow Hidden Ones gathered in Philippi and attempted to resurrect him with the Shroud of Eden, to no avail. Brutus only opened his eyes and moved without breathing, subsequently falling still in a seeming second death.
