2. Wikipedia:

Stageira was an ancient Greek city on the Chalkidiki peninsula and is chiefly known for being the birthplace of Aristotle. The city lies approximately 8 kilometers north northeast of the present-day village of Stagira, close to the town of Olympiada . . . Philip II of Macedon later had more success, occupying and destroying the city. As payment for Aristotle's tutoring of his son Alexander the Great, Philip later rebuilt the city and resettled the old city's inhabitants, who had been enslaved. Many new structures were built at this time, including an aqueduct, two shrines to Demeter and many houses.
