Dipaia: Eth. Dipaieus. A town of Arcadia in the district Maenalia,
through whose territory the river Helisson flowed. Its inhabitants removed to
Megalopolis on the foundation of the latter city. It is frequently mentioned on
account of a battle fought in its neighbourhood between the Lacedaemonians and
all the Arcadians except the Mantineians, sometime between B.C. 479 and 464 (Paus.
iii. 11. § 7, viii. 8. § 6, 27. § 3, 30. §. 1, 45. § 2; Herod. ix. 35.) Leake
supposes that the ruins near Davia represent Dipaea; but since Pausanias does
not mention Dipaea in his description of Maenalia, although he notices every insignificant
place, Ross remarks that it is improbable that Pausanias should have passed over
Dipaea, if these ruins really belong to the latter, since they are still very
considerable. Ross regards them as the remains of Maenalus.
