History (1)



  Mountain of southwestern Peloponnese, north of Messene.
  This mountain served as a refuge to Helots in rebellion against Sparta in 464. When, about a century later, Epaminondas, the Theban general, after his victory over Sparta at Leuctra (371) freed the Messenian Helots of Sparta's dominion, it is at the foot of Mount Ithome that they built their capital city, Messene.
