Lithari - The olive mill through the ages

There are three thick stone tables around the pool.

What are these; How did they get there? Where did they come from and what did they serve?

It is a peculiar rock, carved in the shape of a wheel. Although they seem to be made of concrete, it is a whole stone from an old family olive mill. Their Greek name is "Lithari" and comes from the word "Lithos" which means stone.
