Polygyra

There is a view that the ancient town Tegyra or Tegyrae should be located there, 5kms to the north of Orchomenus. Plutarch has reported a temple and an oracle of Apollo in Tegyra, as well as two springs that one can still see today (Ekd. Athinon, Pausaniou Periegissis, vol. 5, p. 244, note 1).
