SUMMARY

The Xeronomi community lies on the south foot of Mount Helicon, at an altitude of 190 m. It occupies a quite important site, lying a few kilometers from Thisvi, Thespiai and Alyke. Besides, at a close distance from modern-day community, ancient Donakon is reported by Pausanias. The existence of a settlement at Xeronomi during Byzantine times is attested by few but important archaeological findings that have come to light until today.
