In the central square of Afissos gushes a source. According to mythology, Jason, the leader of the Argonauts stopped with "Argo" in our village for water supply from this source, just before starting the journey to the distant Colchis. Enchanted, however, by the beauty of the landscape some companions were forgotten on the shore. The "Argo" began its journey and to the companions who asked him if he would wait for them ,Jason said : "Afisson them" (leave them).
