Remains of a Neolithic settlement have been found near Akropotamos. [2] The Akropotamos is built at an altitude of 240 meters and before 1940 it was known as Bobliani and Monolithos of the Akropotamos. [3] After 1924, Greek refugees from Cappadocia settled in the settlement. [4] In early October 1941, about 20 residents of the settlement were executed by the Bulgarian Occupation Forces in retaliation for the outbreak of the Drama uprising. [5]
