View of the Libyan sea from ancient Tara (or Tarra) - 10th June 2007
View of the Libyan sea from the ancient Tara (Agia Roumeli)
Agia Roumeli was an important city in the Greco-Roman period called Tara (or Tarra). Almost all of it has disappeared but there are some remains that can be seen on the eastern side of the river (which runs down through the gorge of Samaria) where a necropolis was located (and excavated).
The photo above was taken from the lower part of the necropolis looking towards the Libyan sea.
