SOLION, Ancient city, ETOLOAKARNANIA

You are here GREECE ETOLOAKARNANIA SOLION


Overview

  In the middle of the peninsula of Plagia in place of Sterna, there was a fortress which had optical control from the Northwest region to the Southeast. The fortress had been constructed during the 5th century and is considered to be identified with the city of "Sollion", which was Corinthian colony. "Sollion" was conquered during Peloponnesian war by the Athenians and according to Thoukidides (430 B.C.) is included in the occupation of Palerians - Akarnanians.
  "Sollion"is considered by many historians as a city in a hostile Akarnanian land, where Paleros and Alyzia dominated. The nautical decline of Corinthos rang the Knell of its existance therefore one can observe that Sollion was not a city but a nautical Corinthian spot.
This text (extract) is cited August 2003 from the Municipality of Kekropia tourist pamphlet.
