A small fortress on modern Sokha peak between Mytikas and Archondochori in the municipality of Xiromero, Aetolia-Acarnania, Greece. The fortress wall makes use of local stone, mixing polygonal and trapezoidal styles. A rock-cut cistern is located inside the fort, and Hellenistic reliefs have been noted. The site has broad intervisibility with the Mytikas valley and the channel around both sides of the island of Karnos (modern Kalamos).
