Χριστιανικοί Χρόνοι[Επεξεργασία]
Για τη ζωή της στους χριστιανικούς χρόνους δεν έχουμε πολλές ιστορικές πληροφορίες, πέραν του ότι αποτέλεσε έδρα επισκοπής κατά τον 5ο και 6ο αιώνα. Από τον 9ο αιώνα (869-870), η πόλη εμφανίζεται στις πηγές ως Ζητούνι. Το 1204 με την κατάλυση της βυζαντινής κυριαρχίας ύστερα από την άλωση της Κωνσταντινούπολης από τους σταυροφόρους της 4ης σταυροφορίας, πέρασε στα χέρια των Φράγκων, που ίδρυσαν εκεί τη Βαρωνία του Ζητουνίου, με το όνομα Girton. Η οχύρωση της ακρόπολης (Ακρολαμία) αναφέρεται για πρώτη φορά ως Κάστρο σε μια επιστολή του Πάπα Ιννοκέντιου Γ΄(αρχές 13ου αι.). Στα 1218, κατελήφθη από το Δεσπότη της Ηπείρου Θεόδωρο Κομνηνό Δούκα, ο οποίος στα 1275 παρέδωσε το Κάστρο ως προίκα στον μετέπειτα Δούκα των Αθηνών Γουλιέλμο δε λα Ρος. Στα 1311, το Κάστρο του Ζητουνίου πέρασε στα χέρια των Καταλανών υπό την αιγίδα του βασιλείου της Νεαπόλεως, με την ονομασία El Cito.

Little is known of the city's history after. In Late Antiquity, the city was the seat of a bishop, and reappears in 869/870 under the name of Zetouni.[4] Following the Fourth Crusade (1204), the city was captured by the Frankish crusaders of the Duchy of Athens, who made it the seat of a barony. In 1218 it was captured by Epirote forces, and was surrendered again to the Franks of Athens in 1275 as a dowry.

The name shloud be Zetouni...:)
It was a Barony...

Girton = the name that Frangs gave to the city
Akrolamia = in Greek means Castle of Lamia

One account says that the city was named after the mythological figure of Lamia, the daughter of Poseidon, and queen of the Trachineans. Another holds that it is named after the Malians, the inhabitants of the surrounding area. In the Middle Ages, Lamia was called Zetounion (Ζητούνιον), a name first encountered in the 8th Ecumenical Council in 869. It was known as Girton under Frankish rule following the Fourth Crusade and later El Cito when it was controlled by the Catalan Company of mercenaries. In Turkish, it was sometimes called Izdin or İzzeddin.[2] The city was also known as Zeitoun,[3] Ζητούνι (Zitouni), Zirtounion, and Zitonion.

+1 for akrolamia.

Also it can be named "Demetrius I Poliorcetes", as a tribute to the founder of demetrias city.
