Historical background


(Sixth - fifth century BC)

The territory of Haliartos was known in ancient times and is mentioned by Homer in the Iliad (2, 503). The city was defended by thick walls with an Acropolis where was located a temple dedicated to Athena Itonia. Haliartos seems to have depended on Thebes. During the Persian invasion, Haliartos one of the few cities in the region not to recognize the authority of Xerxes and was destroyed as such. The city was rebuilt soon after and was part of the first béotinne League (446-386 BC). The city was the capital of the second league in 378 BC. uses cookies to guarantee a better user experience and to carry out statistics of visits.
