Harmilo's Grave

Harmilos' grave is situated in Harmyli in the Pyli area. Harmilos was a hero from whom the Harmelean line is descended. The grave's roof is in the form of an arch while on both sides there are a series of tombs symmetrically facing each other. A portico was believed to lead to the entrance of the grave. Parts of this portico were used to build the Timios Stavros church just above the tomb while an inscription also now part of the church seems to indicate that the structure was built around 300 years B.C.
