Modern Description: Phoitiai was a town in Akarnania dependent on Stratos. Ancient Phoitiai occupied a distinctive hill ca. 2 km. north of modern Babini. The site is strategically important, controlling the western part of Xiromero plain and the passages to Aetos-Koboti (north) and the road connecting Amphilochia and Stratos (northeast). The city walls enclose two hills, a feature not uncommon in many Akarnanian fortifications, and were reinforced with towers and angular projections. Small temple near Vliziana. The foundations of a small Doric columned temple, belonging to ancient Phoitiai, have been located west of Vliziana, beneath the church of Agia Deutera.
