town on the Isthmus is mentioned by Kallimachos
, 1. 12; cf. Tzetzes schol. on Lycophron
532). It is located at the base of Haghios Dimitrios
Ridge, W of the Isthmian Sanctuary of Poseidon,
where extensive habitational ruins were discovered in
1960. There are also large cemeteries nearby and chance
finds have led to the excavation of several burials. An
inscription found in the area records the name of Agathon Kromnites. Pottery from the cemeteries and the
town site dates from the mid 7th c. B.C. to the 4th c. A.D.
Ancient stone quarries extend from Kromna some 2 km
W to the modern town of Examilia.
