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.
