A valley W of the modern village of Phournoi in the S part of the
region. It has been identified with the Philanoreia found in inscriptions; Pausanias
mentions Philanorion. About 200 m from the Argolic Gulf, the watchtower of a small
border fort is preserved to a height of several courses, with traces of adjoining
structures. The large blocks of coursed polygonal masonry suggest a date in the
late 5th or 4th c. B.C.
