Ancient Iraea near Ayios Ioannis

Ancient Iraea near Ayios Ioannis

Loutra Iraeas near the Ladonas bridge has sulphur springs which may have been popular in antiquity. Very good mosaics are present in what used to an ancient bathhouse, in an area known also as Liadora. The ruins of Ancient Iraea (built by Iraeus, son of Lycaon) are found south of here, near Ayios Ioannis on the banks of the Alfeos river. The city, which had two temples dedicated to Dionysus and an edifice for orgies, was also home of the famous athlete Damaretos (who was victorious in the armed race at the Olympics).
