Cyclopean Walls

kiklopia_teihi

Three kilometres away from Argostoli are the ruins of the ancient Krania walls dating as far back as the 6th or 7th centuary BC. Today the ruins survive, 4km in perimeter and are known as the Cyclopean walls because of their enormous size. The type of rock used to build the walls indicates its date and gives information about Krani. Here amongst the debris a Doric temple dedicated to the goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone was found, an inscription was found on one of the rocks, which is kept at the Archaeological Museum. The inscription reads ‘Triopis Damatria and Kora’, which means Triopida is devoted to Demeter and her daughter. The south side of the hill, called "Root" operated as an ancient necropolis of tombs found in Krania before the mycenean period.
