"On the east of Lentas, there is a spring of water, which was considered to have healing properties. Even today, studies have shown that the water is good in diseases of the stomach, blood and bleeding tendency. Thus, this spring was the cause for the construction of a huge temple, dedicated to the deified doctor Asclepius and Hygeia Sotira (4th century AC). The temple was renowned as a center of hydrotherapy, physiotherapy and psychiatry. Patients from distant areas, such as Libya, visited this place. From the temple, you can still see the altar, two marble columns and the base of a statue of Asclepius. On this site a Byzantine church was build using also materials from the sanctuary, dedicated to Agios Ioannis Theologos. Remains of Roman baths have been found in the area of the springs. Levina seems to have been abandoned in the 7th-8th century, possibly because of constant pirate raids."
