An ancient fortified settlement of Achaia Phthiotis, located between the modern Greek towns of Palaia Giannitsou, Pappas, and Perivoli in the Phthiotis Regional Unit, Thessaly. The unexcavated site lies at an altitude of 700m, comprising three hills just north of a chapel of the Agia Paraskevi.

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 55 C2 Kypaira

The first modern scholar to describe the site in print (Béquignon) identified it as the ancient Kydonia; however, Helly has thoroughly refuted this older position, demonstrating that Kypaira is the best fit for the site's location and current understanding of the region. Helly's identification is followed by BAtlas and by Pleiades.

At last check (July 2022), vici.org labels this site "Kydonia", presumably after Béquignon.
