Modi



Panoramic view of the villages Gerani and Modi

Modi is a beautiful small village located 15km west of Hania at 80m a.s.l. near the village of Gerani.
Ancient Cretan coins were found here depicting on one side the head of Zeus and on the other that of a bull with the inscription "MODAION" which means coin of the people of MODA or MODEA.
That make some to believe that an ancient city stood here with the above name which was maintained until today as Modi.

Many other findings tombs, weapons etc were unearthed to confirm the claims of the archaeologists.
