ALMYROPOTAMOS (Village) EVIA - Greek Travel Pages



  Almyropotamos is the most notherly village of the Municipality of Styra, located close to the border with the Municipality of Dystos in an area of great interest. It has 500 residents and is set in a rocky hillside in front of the valley which spreads out from the Dipotamo river.
  The coastal hamlet of Panagia belongs administratively to Almyropotamos, as does the islet of Kavalliani. Many commentators identify Kavalliani as the ancient Glaukonissos, in the soil of which the Olympic winner Glaukos, son of Dimilos, was buried by his fellow Karystians.
  The palaeontological survey in the valley of Almyropotamos has uncovered many important finds which belong to mammals of the so-called Picermius fauna. These are mainly the remains of small-bodied horses which were no higher than 1.30 metres tall and had three toes on each foot. According to specialists, Picermius fauna belongs to a steppe environment and has an Asian origin; it is dated to around 13 million years ago.
