In translation, the name of this fortress means `` velvet ''. It was built by the Byzantines on the site of a former defensive structure by order of the commander Alexander the Great – Lysimachos. Previously, the fortress on the Dionysus Hill was surrounded by a ring of thick stone walls.
Now only fragments of the gate and the remains of the walls remain from the fortress.
