Inhabitants' origin

Magnetans are descendants of Delphians

The Magnetans are thought to be descendants of Delphians who settled in the Didyman hills, in Thessaly .. Here was also the temple of Dindymene, Mother of the gods. According to tradition, the wife of Themistocles, some say his daughter, served as a priestess there. But the temple is not now in existence, because the city has been transferred to another site.
