Ancient Pandosia

The location of ancient Pandosia

Pandosia was built in the 8th century B.C. and was the most important colony of Ileio close to Manteio (today’s Kastri). It was protected with a triple wall and from its one side by Acherousia lake. The first wall had many towers. It was conquered by the king Phillip B’, king of Macedonia, and was given in to the habitants of Epirus along with other colonies of Ileioi.

After the giving of the town to the residents of Epirus, many people came here and developed a lot. It was destroyed by the Romans in 167 B.C., and after that they made it the seat of the “Common of Epirus”, with the right to cut their own copper coin. This seat in 148 B.C. was transfered at Dodoni.
