Photographer's Note

Stratoni is located 102 km away from Thessaloniki and 56 km away from Polygiros. An ancient war memorial, which was found in the region (1st century b.c.) and it has impressive statues, tomb, vessels, e.t.c , indicates the position were the city Stratonikeia flourished which is located in the so-called position “Elaionas” of the community Stratonion, where a part of a public roman building has been excavated.
The city was possibly established by Dimitrios Poliorkitis, to honor his mother Stratoniki or his daughter. About 35 years ago a war memorial in Stratoni was researched, that is a tomb –monument, which had two male and one female statues, the well known “Despoina” of Stratoni, which is exposed to the Museum of Polygiros. The inscriptions that found there, show that the monument is dated in the years of Jesus.
