Ahinos was built where the city of ancient Ehinos (or Echinous) stood. There are remains of an acropolis from the 4th century BC and a tower that is still quite intact, as well as a war memorial or heroes tomb from roman times. Rectangular walls constructed by Theban general Epaminondas to control access to the sea were built on a hilltop north of the village, and were reinforced and expanded throughout history. Additions from the time of Justinian are also visible.
