An ancient polis mentioned by Pausanias. Epigraphic evidence indicates that, in the 5th century BCE, it became a political dependency of Mantinea. Its precise location is not known, but Camp in BAtlDir followed some earlier scholarship in placing it "near Alonistaina," a modern village in the municipality of Falanthos (Arcadia).
