History of Sivota

The village of Sivota received its name from the Naval Battle of Sivota (433 B.C) between the Corinthians and the Corfiotes during the Peloponnesian War, as described by the ancient historian Thucydides (460 - 400 B.C). According to Thucydides, the region - which was comprised of five islands and the opposite shores - was uninhabited.

Later mentions of Sivota stated that in 551 A.D. the region was destroyed by the Goths. Later, in 1294 A.D, the region reverted to the Epirus Archbishop. In 1821 the islands were the base for Kyriakouli Mavromichali during the Greek Revolution. The village was later called Volia and Mourtos and in 1950 it received its current name of Sivota.

Today Sivota, in accordance with the Law concerning the unification of communities (known as "Kapodistria") and together with Plataria, Faskomilia, Skorpiona, Argyrotopo and Polyneri, constitute the Municipality of Sivota, which is based in Plataria.
