In antiquity it was a municipality of Athens, and even the oldest, as mentioned by ancient writers and ancient inscriptions, and belonged to the tribe of Antiochis. The inhabitant of ancient Pallini was called Pallinus. Pallini was neighboring the ancient municipalities of Gargittou and Ignousa. According to tradition, when Paleoltides, the inhabitants of ancient Pallini, rebelled against Theseus, their leader and leader Pallas - his brother Aegeus and his uncle Theseus - walking to Athens left part of his army with his two sons at Gargitto setting up an ambush against Theseus. The proximity of Pallini to ancient Gargittos is also evidenced by another ancient legend that Eurysthenios was buried in Gargittos just across from the famous ancient temple of Pallinidos Athena (which also adorns the emblem of the Municipality today). In Pallini its sanctuary "on Pallindia Athena" was built, right in the place of the present-day church of Agios Nikolaos in Kantza, to serve the worship needs of the Pallinians.
