Kassope and Ephyra

The ancient cities of Kassope and Ephyra in northwestern Greece, were founded in the 4th century B.C.   Kassope is a fine example of a city based on the Hippodamian grid plan, probably developed as a consolidation of several smaller rural villages.   Ephyra (Kichyro) is particularly famed for its Necromanteion (Oracle of the Dead).
