Photographer's Note

Servia (Greek: Σέρβια) is a town in the prefecture of Kozani, Macedonia, Greece.
Its name derives from the Latin verb "servo" 'to watch over' and it was given by the Romans approximately during the 2nd century A.D.[citation needed] It may be the ancient "Phylacae" (Greek: Φυλακαί) from the Greek verb φυλάσσω mentioned by the Roman writer Pliny the Elder as well as at an ancient Greek inscription found at the city of Veroia: "Παρμενίων Γλαυκία Φυλακήσιος νικητής εν δολίχω" 'Parmenion son of Glauceas from Phylacae winner at Doliche'.
Servia has also given its name to the prehistoric settlement site beside the former bridge across the Haliakmon river to the west and now submerged deep below the surface of Lake Polyphytou.
