The advantageous position of the settlement suggests that it was probably a port of call for ships transporting grain from Egypt to Constantinople. The settlement flourished under Justinian I (527 - 565 A.D.). The necropolis lies at the brow of the cliff with tombs carved into the rock.
The place of pilgrimage of Agios Georgios is located between the site of the basilicas and the necropolis. There is also a small chapel founded in the late 13th early 14th century also named after Agios Georgios. The stone - built church of Agios Georgios was built more recently.
