Karystos was a Greek polis located on the south coast of Euboea. It is included in Homer's "catalogue of ships" in the Iliad and its name is also thought to be attested in Linear B documents. The ancient acropolis hill, which lies to the north of the modern coastal village, is now occupied by the remains of the Venetian "Castel Rosso".
