Modern Description: At 50 km the road passes Zárakes, 1 km to the south of which are two ruined windmills which mark the site of some foundations, possibly of Zaret(h)ra, a place captured by Phokion in 350 BC. To the south of here, the windswept narrow ridges with views to the sea on both sides of the island have been dedicated to wind-farms which dominate the sky-line for a considerable distance.
