Where they builded a special prison, for the politically thinking the different way, than the governments of theat time. Have any more information or web sites in mind??

    I think the best way to write its name in Latin alphabet is Yiaros. You can find historical documents on it in the site: http://web.otenet.gr/aski/index.htm Stefanos Thessaloniki, Greece
