Polychna (Πολύχνη) is an ancient city on the island of Crete in present-day Greece.[1] In the year 429 BC, Polychna was in an alliance with the Athenians, who laid waste to neighbouring Cydonia.[2] By the Middle Ages Polychna, well situated on a freshwater lake, was considered a strong castle fortification.[3]
