An ancient settlement of Laconia, mentioned by Pausanias. Kiesling (ToposText) notes: "Based on the similarity of the names, Forster placed Arainos/Arainon at the modern coastal village of Ageranos. Just to the south, at Kamares, survives the apse of a very large Roman building, and traces of Roman settlement." Roman era remains, including possible harbor constructions (submerged), have also been identified just north of Ageranos at Vathy.
