Description Because of the size of the settlement, it was only inhabited by one family. Maybe the settlement was abandoned at the end of Early Minoan III and replaced by the bigger settlement of Kastri (northern of it). The situation can be compared to the relocation of the settlement from Myrtos/Phournu Koriphi to Pyrgos.
