TRANSPORTATION OF CEREAL
The grain to the Lower Mills was carried along the Communal Road on horse and oxen carts. That is why some of the mills have hollow stones for tying of horses and oxen. Those for horses were placed at the height of their heads, while those for oxen were built low in the wall of the mill to keep the head bent down while tied.
The area around the mill being limited, it only allowed accommodation of a small number of animals used for carrying of grain or olives for grinding. In order to avoid crowds and queuing at the mills, the millers would use a specially crafted horn for calling and informing the inhabitants of nearby villages to come on their turn to deliver the grain for grinding.
