A Byzantine and Ottoman fortification northeast of (and overlooking) the Azyleia/Mytika plain in Acarnania, Greece. Some commentators have supposed an earlier antecedent on the site.

In modern Greek text that is repeated on several websites, one finds the assertion that this fortress was built in the 6th century and replaced an earlier one created by the city of Azylia. A version of this text appears on 520 Greeks: Glosses tou Barnaka, where it is attributed (without page numbers or clear publisher information) to Pherentinos n.d. Akarnania and a work we have not been able to locate in libraries or union catalogs: Ν.Μόσολα “Η αρχαία πόλη Αλυζία και οι απότοκοι οικισμοί του τέως δήμου Σολίου”.
