View looking southeast at six courses of stone of one of the towers on the north slope of the acropolis of Patmos that is called the “Kastelli” (acropolis).  These fortifications date to the Hellenistic Period—that is about the third century B.C.

Compare the style of the well–preserved Hellenistic fortifications found at Priene and Assos—both in Turkey.
