Ancient Skilloundia (Trifilia)

The city of Trifilia is 3.5 km south of Olympia, where excavations revealed a settlement from the mid-Hellenistic period. The Ilians destroyed the twon in 572 BC and the Spartans dominated it around 400 BC before surrendering it to Xenophon. The latter established the temple of Artemis who protected hunting.
