DIALISKARI (Small port) GARGALIANI
The 'port' of Dialiskari is situated 6 kms west of Gargaliani and 2 kms south of Marathos. It is an ancient town, which according to the researcher and Headmaster of the local High school, Mr. Sot. Liritzis is the same as the ancient town of Erana of Stravonas. Mr. Nathan Valmin who has carefully studied the ruins of Dialiskari has come to the following conclusion: "I am coming across ancient Erana when I see the ruins of Dialiskari." There are ruins of probably Roman buildings with mosaic floors and tiled yards and bedrooms.
There are two marble streaked pillars, two capitals of Ionian Order, ten bases of Ionian pillars and plenty of shards. The small church of "St. Nicolas" stands just 50 metres southeast of the Port of Dialiskari. It was built by the survivors of a shipwreck in1900.
