Historical data

On the hill "Tsouka", located between two streams and right next to the present village Drymos, the archeological and epigraphic findings identified the location of an ancient settlement, which was a port of ancient Thyrreio and from 31 BC. was administratively part of Nikopolis. Also, a little further west (in the place "Palioklisi") was found the existence of an important sanctuary (Asklipieion), which has been operating continuously since the 4th century BC. until the 2nd-3rd AD. century. The discovery of a Roman millionth (3rd century AD) testifies to the current location of the settlement, as the Roman road Limnaia-Thyrreio-Aktio / Lefkada passed through it. [3] Recently, a pre-Christian three-aisled basilica with a baptistery and many buildings was located, as well as a large building complex with baths next to the village as part of the construction of the Samario-Lefkada road, which is visible from the national road.
