The Rodolivos took its name from the words Ellinikotates and leibw or libw Rodon = rodon rainw, disgorge, spills, etc.. that is found in texts of Homer, Aeschylus, Evripidou, Plato etc.. (see. Macedonian for toponyms – (C). Abtzi). Isaac Layrentidis in his book “The en elladi egkatastasis of Pontus Greeks” (SLE. 379) He writes for the Rodoleibos that is an age-old a town known. On the Hill of Ag. Athanasios cave dwellings that seem to date back to the stone age. The name of the town center came upon delivery since the King's daughter Phyllis aleifeto with rodostagma Sithwnos, extract from Roda (Roses) that grew abundantly there.
Ekatofylla wheel cultivated in ancient Rodoleibos (Pageos area – Philippi). And have linked their existence with many aspects of life of the ancient inhabitants of the region. The Elevation wheel connected with Folkways devotional, rituals (the rose symbolizes the Sun and the Sun was at the top of Paggaio age-old Holy. The Romans later were celebrating the Parentelia and Rosarie ( Rosario Crosses). But in kopisan currencies from Pieres, Macedonians and Romans we find the Elevation wheel ekatofylla (see. I. Svoronou study, in French language edition. 1919 SLE. 126). Information for the ekatofylla wheel reported by Apollodorus (VII 1, 3), Nikandros (Athens 15, 683(b)), Theophrastus (Fyt. History VI, 6), Pliny (XXI 4, 160), Herodotus (4, 138) κ.α.
The Rodoleibos worshipped Apollo. In front of every house ambushed a tall conical stone that say “Apollo Aygyiea” (Apollo way) Why were standing in the street. In weeping oil and stone adorned with movies. This was a small altar and protected the inhabitants and homes from all evil. The custom of throwing a stone at home on new year's day, or the 2nd day of January has left from the ancient one season.
In Orphic refers and the town of Livithra.
“Landward side d’ esythin chionwdea ormitheis

Quoted as we read and the famous cave (antro) where the muse Calliope begat Orpheus on the bed of the Oiagroy King megalokardoy of Thrace. In the area of Paggaio were the Livithra. In’ other writers Orpheus was born in Olympus and Livithra Thrace then expanded up to Olympus. Both towns are often confused. The Livithra pangeo taught Orpheus. The Pieres built towns Methoni, Fagrita, Pergamum, Apollonia, Galipso, Eleythari. Methoni in the foothills of Pageos was built in remembrance of the old Pierwn THRACIANS of Methoni. Yet it is said that the Livithra the built in Pangeo in remembrance of the old Livithron of Olympus. But this contradicts other authors argue that in the palaiotati town of Paggaio Orpheus Orpheus after forward honor and worship of named Livithra this city of Olympus, which is known to the inhabitants of amoysoi and were all fools. After their displacement from the Macedonians the Pieres THRACIANS seems that rebuilt the city Leibithron in Pangeo, the subsequent Leibithro Roses and later Rodoleibos. However there are other secrets that are kept away from the authors and curious commentators.
