Macedon empire crushed by Rome and Greeks and soon Macedon was invaded by Rome. The Thracian Scordisci battled against Rome in Macedon. The Germanic Cimbri  and Teutones moved close to Italy.

The Romans won the support of most of the states of central and southern Greece by making it known that their aim was to drive Philip out of Greece and to confine him to Macedonia.
