The site of Teichos Dymaion is located in Achaea and was continuously occupied in antiquity. Its megalithic fortifications date to the time of the Mycenaeans. In the first millennium BCE, the site's strategic value makes it a factor in third-century warfare. The site continued to be used during the Byzantine period, was used by the Venetians, and factored in World War II when extensive military works built at the site wreaked havoc on the ancient remains.
