Roman aqueduct in Moria
The Roman aqueduct is located 600 m from the village of Moria (which is 6 km from the town of Mytilini). It is a large aqueduct dating back to Roman times (2nd century – 3rd century). It was built to convey water from the springs in the Agiasos area to the town of Mytilini. A large part of the aqueduct survives today, including the arches. Twelve upright columns survive from the construction, in between which there are seven arches of the middle row and one arch of the lower row. The arches are built in grey marble extracted from a nearby quarry. On top of the arches there was a conduit transferring water from the Megali Limni spring on mount Olympus, as well form other springs along its 26 km length. Parts of the aqueduct have been uncovered in several ravines in central Lesvos, the largest of them at the Moria area, 170 m long and 27 m wide, with a total of 17 arches.
