Calindoia or Kalindoia was an ancient Bottiaean city in Mygdonia . The name also comes down to us in the form Calindaea. The town also bore the names Alindoia and Tripoiai.
Kalindoia is first reported in the Athenian-Bottiaean alliance of 422 BCE and later in the Epidaurian list of Theorodokoi of 360/59 BCE. The name of Theodorokos was Pausanias, possibly the same as Pausanias, the pretender to the Macedonian throne in 368 and 360 BCE. It was refounded as a Macedonian city in the late 4th century BCE. A dedicatory inscription to Apollo was found at Toumbes Kalamotou; it records a list of priests of Asclepius who had fulfilled their duties from the time when King Alexander gave Kalindoia to Makedones. Priests of Asclepius were frequently eponymous officials in Macedon.
