Lysimachia was established in 309 BC as a strategic base by Lysimachos in the north-western strip of the Thracian Chersonese, where it commanded passage through the isthmus and the roads into mainland Thrace. The city flourished when it became the capital of Lysimachos's kingdom, but after his death in 281 BC, it fell under Seleukid control, and and thereafter, it came under Ptolemaic rule for a time.
