Patras

The area around Diakou before it has its current name, came from the greatest area of Samakia during the Ottoman period. It was known as Selachagia (Σελαχαγιά) from one of the Turkish landowner with that name.

The area had a tavern known as Nea Elvetia (Νέα Ελβετία) which means New Switzerland.

Later on, the area was renamed Diakou. That time, the tavern was renamed Diakou where the tavern used to be and is now run by Vasiliki Kapota.

One of the name origin of Diakou was a combatant of the Greek War of Independence of 1821 Ilias Diakos which descends from a military family of the Diakos from Pyrgos in the Ilia prefecture. Ilias Diakos battled heroically in the Battle of Girokomio.
