VIRAN EPISKOPI Mylopotamou, Crete.

Six km W of Perama, remains of a Hellenistic and Roman settlement, with Minoan remains to the E. Below the modern church are the remains of a Hellenistic hieron, and on the summit of the hill on which the site stands is a large rectangular building with several rooms of probable Roman date. Traces of house walls are found on the slopes of the hill, and the site may have extended onto the level ground to the S.
