Lambagiana (Philanoreia, Philanorion)

  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.
