Edessa at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Chief city (pop., 1991: 18,000), Macedonia, Greece. Located on a steep bluff above the valley of the Loudhiá s River, it is a prominent trading and agricultural center. The assumption that it was Aigai, the first capital of ancient Macedonia, has been challenged by archaeological discoveries at Verghina. Fought over by the Bulgarians, Byzantines, and Serbs, Edessa was taken by the Turks in the 15th cent. In 1912 it passed to Greece.
