The city in
Central Epeiros in which the Molossian kings and people
exchanged oaths (Plut. Pyrrh
. 5.1). A temple of the late
4th c. B.C. has been excavated. Inscriptions show that the
Molossian state and later the Epeirote Alliance passed
resolutions here. The hill Gardhiki above Radotovi is
crowned with a circuit wall ca. 1500 m long, built at
various periods. Passaron controlled the route leading
from the plain of Ioannina to the upper Kalamas valley.
