Modern Description: Founded by Eretrian colonists in the 8th century BC. Renowned for its oracle of Zeus Ammon (5th century BC until the Roman era).
Remains of the sanctuary with a Doric temple (second half of 4th century BC) have been revealed on the shore at Kallithea (or Maltepe). The buildings in which pilgrims assembled were also found. A second sanctuary, of Dionysos and the Nymphs, SW of the previous one, is earlier. A rock-cut stairway and a cave with stalactites -- as yet unexplored -- have been discovered. Apollo Kanastraios was worshipped here. The complex of sanctuaries was probably destroyed by Theodosius II (4th century AD) and the Early Christian basilica built on the site.
