Near the dusty modern town of Aliartos lies an acropolis of mixed origins. The Mycenaean part lies on the hill, with more modern buildings from the 7th century BC to its north. Two towers from the 6th-5th centuries BC remain, with parts of a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. Coins from around 500 BC were found here, as well as a cemetery dating from the Roman period.
