Of the ancient town of Daulis or Dauleia, already mentioned at Homeros (Ilias 2,520) as a town in Phocis, only a few remains in a very wooded area can be found, among other things pieces of the city wall. The town has been frequently attacked and destroyed, but is still mentioned as the seat of a bishop in later antiquity. According to Pausanias 10.4.7, Daulis was the home of the mythical king Tereus, the villain in the myth of Prokne and Philomela known from Ovid. There must also have been a temple here for Athena, “with an ancient statue of the gods”. The site is especially worth a visit because of the beautiful view on the Parnassos.
