History

The ancient town Dystus was mentioned by the 4th century BC historian Theopompus.[4] It is thought to have been founded by the Dryopians.[5] During the 1950s, the power corporation of Greece established a steam power plant close to the lake Dystos at the city of Aliveri. That power plant used lake water for the cooling system
