   A town in Laconia, where Demeter had a temple. Aristomenes, the Messenian leader, endeavoured on one occasion to seize a party of Laconian women who were celebrating here the rites of the goddess. The attempt failed, through the courageous resistance of the women, and Aristomenes himself was taken prisoner. He was released, however, the same night, by Archidamea, the priestess of Demeter, who had before this cherished an affection for him.
