Founded by the Ionians, ancient Leontio was a city in Achaea that was a member of the Ionian (or Ionic) Dodecapolis (12 towns). The city was destroyed at the end of the 3rd century BC by Philip V of Macedon (or Macedonia). To date, there have been excavations on a hill three kilometers northwest of Vlasia that revealed the walls of the citadel of the ancient city and, on the eastern slope of the hill, an ancient theater. Archaeological findings that probably come from ancient Leontio were accidentally uncovered in other parts of the area. We can see here discoveries that were made on private land across from the hill with the acropolis (citadel).
