History

In 1928 the village Mamoura was renamed Alalkomenes after the nearby ancient town of Alalcomenae, that existed in the vicinity.[1] The village became a separate community (together with Agios Athanasios) in 1928, when it was split from the community of Vrastamites. In 1997 it became part of the municipality of Koroneia, which merged into the municipality of Livadeia in 2010.[4]
