Herakleia was founded by Sparta in 426 and passed in and out of Spartan control until it was ceded by Jason of Pherai to the Oitaians during a conflict. The nearby town of Trachis was re-named Herakleia and probably absorbed by Herakleia around the time of the foundation of that city by the Spartans.
