It is built in the area of Homeric Epia, of where Agamemnon wanted to post Achilles to return to battle.

In the 4th century (365 BC), in the area of Epia, Epimenidis from Koroneia of Viotia built a city named Koroni either because he derived from Koroneia or when they raised the new city a copper corona (coin) was found. The city developed quickly with esteemed culture, important works of art and grandeur monuments.
