THE FAMOUS ANCIENT LAVRIO MINES ARE 2500 YEARS OLD AND HAVE A TOTAL LENGTH OF 50 KILOMETRES AND WERE BUILT ON SIX UNDERGROUND LEVELS. THE ENTIRE MINING SITE OF LAVRIO CONSTITUTES A NATURAL MUSUEM SINCE MORE THAN 400 MINERAL SPECIES CAN BE FOUND IN THE REGION. MOST OF THESE MINERALS ARE FOUND IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS. LAVRIO HAS AROUSED THE INTEREST OF A LARGE NUMBER OF MINERALOGISTS AND AMATEUR COLLECTORS OWING TO BOTH THE VARIETY AND PARTICULAR BEAUTY OF ITS MINERAL SAMPLES. THE STORY OF HOW MINING BEGAN IN LAVRIO IS LOST IN THE MISTS OF EARLY HISTORY. MANY ANCIENT WRITERS AND ORATORS MENTION LAVRIO, INCLUDING AESCHYLUS, ARISTOTLE, DEMOSTHENES, LYSIAS, ARISTOPHANES AND STRABO. ACCORDING TO ARISTOTLE, IT WAS IN 483BC, WHEN THE RICH DEPOSITS OF MARONIA (PRESENT DAY KAMAREZA) WERE DISCOVERED.
