Tower-Fryktoria of Limiko, Parnitha, Municipality of Acharnes

In the area of Loimikos, in the northern part of the mountain range of Parnitha, there is a fryktoria-tower dating to the first half of the 4th c. BC, known as Loimikos Tower.

It is a square building measuring 8x8 m., of isodomic masonry with some trapezoidal stones placed in the joints. Six (6) rows of structures are preserved that reach a maximum height of 3.5 m.

The entrance is situated to the east and its interior is divided into three sections, one of which is now filled with stones to the top.

The purpose of its establishment must have been the surveillance of the road that came from the plain of Tanagra and led from the eastern passages to Athens.
