History[edit]

The village was originally founded in the valley southeast of its present location. It was relocated to its present, safer location during the Ottoman rule of Greece. The new village was named Stougko. As a result of the 1525 treaty of Tamasi, the Agrafa area was de facto independent; the name "Agrafa" means "unwritten", the area was not recorded by the Ottomans.
