Phocian Drymaia, visited by Pausanias after Tithronion (10.33.12), is now especially worth a visit because of the sometimes spectacular remains of the ancient walls of the acropolis. The city is called Drymos by Herodotus. It (like so many other Phocian towns) was first destroyed by the Persians, but rebuilt. Destroyed again after the Phocians’ defeat in the Holy War, the city was later rebuilt. The surviving remains (the entire outline is still recognizable) date from the Hellenistic period.
