RADOTOVI (“Passaron”) Greece.

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.
