Ancient Stagira East Halkidiki
The Ancient Stagira is located about 500 m Southeast of today’s settlement of Olympiada, on a small, mountainous and beautiful peninsula, which is called Liotopi. The town took both hills, one coastal at the North and one bigger at the South, which are divided by a low neck.
The position of the town, which is well know as the home town of Aristotle, is identified with the reports of the ancient writers, and with the researches of the current classicists.
The ancient records are clear: They give the towns distance by the ancient Akanthos at the south, they mention that it was coastal, and the most important is that most of the times refer to a small island across Stageira, which was named Kapros.
