Cirrha

A port to the east of Itea on the north coast of the gulf of Corinth, owned tin-mines which were worked in prehistoric times. The site was occupied in the early Helladic period and in the transitional period between the middle Helladic and the late Helladic periods. It flourished in the latter part of the late Helladic period as the port of Mycenaean Crisa and it was especially prosperous in the 7th cent. It was involved in the fate of Crisa, but it revived later as a port.
