Ancient Titane was part of the city-state of Sicyon. It is named after Titan, a brother of Helios. The city had a temple of Asclepius, built by Alexanor, a grandson of Asclepius. There were also a temple of Athena, and an altar of the Winds.[4] The acropolis of the ancient city has been excavated.[3]
