History[edit]

The modern town of Aliartos is a recent creation. In the early 19th century, the site was occupied by two small agricultural settlements, Moulki (Μούλκι) and Krimpas (Κριμπάς). In 1835, the name of ancient Haliartus was revived for the newly established municipality which encompassed these settlements. Krimpas was renamed to Aliartos in June 1919,[4] but in 1951 the settlement was disbanded and the name was transferred in July 1953 to Moulki.[5] The names of Moulki and Krimpas survive as quarters of the new town.

Municipality[edit]

The municipality Aliartos was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the following 2 former municipalities, that became municipal units:[6]
