Livanates is a town of the prefecture of Fthiotida in central Greece with a population of 2,559 inhabitants (2011). It belongs to the province of Locrida. It is located 68 km from Lamia and was the seat of the Municipality of Dafnousion. Since 1999, according to Kapodistria Law, the Livanates were united with the two neighboring villages of Arkitsa and Gouley and formed the expanded Municipality of Dafnousion, based in Livanates. From 2011, the "Kallikrates" Law is a Municipal Community of the expanded Municipality of Lokron, based in Atalanti. Livanates is mainly a rural village. The region produces vegetables, olives, tobacco and cotton, beans, tomatoes, peanuts and others. On the beach there is also a small harbor with several fishing boats and several other boats.On the edge of the city is Kynos, an archaeological site in which, after excavations, the ruins of the homonymous ancient settlement of Opounda Lokrisa were discovered. This long-standing use of the site is also one of the most interesting and subversive parameters of the Kyn excavation as it is one of the rare cases of settlement with continuous use up to the modern era. It is located in one of the most active seismological areas of Greece, since it falls within the range of action of the well-known Atalanti fault, which has in the past caused many destructive earthquakes, some of which are known to us by the ancient Greek secretariat. After each earthquake the inhabitants did not abandon the site, but flattened the ruins and above them they were building new ones. Where parts of the buildings were repairable, they were used to complement them, where necessary, in order to achieve a new utilitarian structure. This practice after the seismic incident of the mid-12th century BC is clearly depicted in the preserved buildings of the excavation that the visitor can see today.
