History

The town was first attested in 1676 by French archaeologist Jacob Spon as an Albanian village.[1] According to the inhabitants of the town they are descended from Albanian settlers that arrived in Corinth earlier than the ones of Xylokeriza.[1] 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.[1] Examilians have been reported to not always be in good terms with the inhabitants of Xylokeriza.[1] According to some scholars the source of these local differences is that Examilians descend from earlier settlers than the ones of Xylokeriza.[1]
