Examilia (Greek: Εξαμίλια) is a town in the municipality of Corinth, Greece. Distance is about 7 km south of Corinth, E of Kechries (Cenchreae), W of Loutra Elenis.
The town was first attested in 1676 by French archaeologist Jacob Spon as an Albanian village. According to the inhabitants of the town they are descended from Albanian settlers that arrived in Corinth earlier than the ones of Xylokeriza. Based on Spon and Francis Wheler modern historians assume that the ancestors of Examilians had settled the area at least since the late 17th century. Examilians have been reported to not always be in good terms with the inhabitants of Xylokeriza. According to some scholars the source of these local differences is that Examilians descend from earlier settlers than the ones of Xylokeriza.
