About 100 m north of the chapel of Agios Panteleimonas, the remains of an ancient wine or oil press can be found to the right of the road. The round stone with tubules / edges is easy to see to catch the juice or oil. Then maybe there was a canal that led to a large, well-preserved vessel. This vessel made of volcanic rock (dacite) cannot be overlooked. If you follow the hiking route of the green route G, you will definitely pass by here.
