Pavliani (Greek: Παύλιανη) is a village on Mount Oeta, and a former community in Phthiotis, Greece. It is divided into two settlements, Pavliani proper or Ano Pavliani (Άνω Παύλιανη) and Nea Pavliani (Νέα Παύλιανη) or Kato Pavliani (Κάτω Παύλιανη).[2]

History[edit]

The ruins of the medieval town of Siderokastron are located to the east of the village.[3] With the establishment of the independent Kingdom of Greece, on 20 April 1835 Pavliani became the seat of the Municipality of the Rodontians (Δήμος Ροδοντίων) of the Phocis and Locris Prefecture.[4] The municipality comprised the nearby villages of Gardikaki (Oiti), Sklithraki, and Koumaritsi.[5]

On 2 July 1841 the Municipality of the Rodontians was dissolved and Pavliani became part of the Municipality of the Heracleots of the Phthiotis and Phocis Prefecture (in 1899–1909 the Phthiotis Prefecture), until it became an independent community (Κοινότης Παύλιανης) on 31 August 1912.[4] The village was also the site of the Battle of Pavliani on 3 June 1943, by the forces of the Greek Resistance against an Italian army column. A monument dedicated to the fallen of the battle stands at the entrance of Kato Pavliani.

Pavliani remained an independent community until the 2011 local government reform,[4] following which it is part of the municipality of Lamia, of which it is a municipal unit. The municipal unit has an area of 38.468 km2.[2] Population was 498 in the 2011 census, of whom 367 in Ano Pavliani and 131 in Kato Pavliani.[1]
