View looking southwest at six courses of stone of a portion of the fortification wall 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.
