Fortification at Erythres, May 2007. "The fortification at Erythres guards the narrow defile through the foothills of Mount Kithairon, linking Attika and Boetia. The fort changed hands many times in antiquity. The remaining walls date from the fourth century.  In the distance, the modern road linking Eleusis and Thebes is visible, running the same course as the ancient route." Photo and description by Stellos Zacarias, via Flickr.
