Ruins of Koila

Koila is located in the middle of the area between the villages of Lagada, Pityos and Kardamyla overlooking the important ancient harbors of Tholos, Lagada, Delphini, Kardamyla. Herodotos refers to Koila in his History of the Ionic Revolution, by mentioning a battle that took place in the region among the army of Istiaios Tyrant of Militos and Chian forces, in 499 BC. The name Koila is also written on ancient Chian coins. Today only scattering ruins of the tower of Koila can be seen in the area, by the visitor. There are also vases as well as a small coppery statue of Goddess Demetra exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Chios that it’s believed they come from the Temple of Apollo at Koila. The Temple is referred in some ancient  sources but today there is no indication of where exactly it was exactly located.
