CHAERONEA

Built at the foot of Mt Petrachos, who witnessed Rhea deceive Cronus to save infant Zeus from his rage, Chaeronea is first mentioned by Homer (bearing the name of Aeolus’ daughter, “Arne”) as one of the Boeotian cities that participated in the Trojan war. With the sceptre of Zeus in its hands, made by Hephaestus himself, it travelled through time creating settlements from the Neolithic period until Roman times.
