Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the history of late medieval Old Phokaia. The agreements renewing the territorial concessions of the New Mahona of Chios in 1373, 1385, 1413 and 1436 did confer upon them the Genoese commune's right to govern Chios, New Phokaia and Old Phokaia. However, as legal documents prescribing claimed rights, these need not have corresponded to the facts on the ground. Genoa and the Mahona had presumably never relinquished their claim to the two Phokaias deriving from the annexation of 1346, even while one or both were governed by the Kalothetoi. The next indication of Old Phokaia's practical situation after 1363 is the reference to its capture by Venetian forces in 1379, during the War of Chioggia. This may be taken to indicate that it was by then in Genoese hands, whether those of the Mahona, of the Gattilusio or of some other individual.
