SUMMARY

The village Thisvi lies on the south foot of Mount Helicon and was inhabited already since the Mycenaean times. Its ancient name survived until the early Byzantine period, while in the Byzantine era it was renamed Kastorion. During the middle Byzantine period and until the beginnings of the 20th c., it was known as Kakosi or Kastoria. South of Thisvi lies the seaport of the ancient town, the harbor Bathy, with traces of habitation until at least the 11th c.
