Erythrai Ancient City is believed to have been founded by Erythros, the son of the Cretan Rahadamanthys. The city, after being ruled by the kingdom, passed to the democratic system and started to be ruled by the kings (Basileus) chosen by the people. Another argument about the name of Erythrai is that it is derived from the word Erythros. In Greek, this word means red and it is mentioned in some sources where the name of the city is named “Red city”.
