History

Skillountia is named after the ancient Triphylian city Scillus. The city featured the Temple of Skillountian Athena. Strabo mentioned that it was founded next to the Alpheus in the area of Fellona (Φελλώνα).Strabo, Book V Inside the city was the Temple of the Ephesian Artemis which was constructed by Xenophon.Pausanias V.6.4 Having been granted land here by the Lacedaemonians, who controlled the area following the Peloponnesian war, Xenophon lived for many years in the city and resided later there following his adventures in Asia, for which he was exiled by the Athenians on account of the help which he brought to Cyrus the Younger, an enemy of Athens, which was allied to the King of Persia, Artaxerxes II. The ancient city has been found in the locality of Profitis Ilias, near Makrisia. The ruins of the Temple of Athena and several buildings have been excavated.{{Citation needed|date=April 2011}}
