The name possibly derives from Gnaeus Egnatius who was a pro-consul of Macedonia and is thought to have initiated the upgrading of the earlier road in the 2nd century BC. The road fell into neglect during the 5th century AD although Emperor Justinian had it repaired and it continued as a trade route through Byzantine times. The road was also used by the Crusaders on route to the Middle East but it had lost much of its importance by the time of the Ottoman conquest.
Via Egnatia is situated in Bakirkoy Istanbul .
