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
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.
