Archaeological findingsEdit

Near the village of Chiliomodi in 2018, archaeologists led by Elena Korka discovered “proof  of  the existence of the ancient city” of Tenea which is assumed to be founded by prisoners of the mythic Trojan War. Stone, clay and marble floors, about 200 rare coins, seven burials with vases and jewelry dating to the Roman era and Hellenistic period were revealed during the excavation. According to Elena Korka, Tenea’s cutting coins was the indicator of its complete independence.[2][3][4]
