Near the church of Agios Vassilios at Gianitsa, an inscription found leaves little doubt about the location of the ancient small town (Ekd. Athinon, Pausaniou Periegissis, vol. 3, p. 105, note 2).
Calam, -ae (Kalamai), a village of Messenia near Limnae, and at no
great distance from the frontiers of Laconia, is represented by the modern village

is the site of the ancient Therae, and must not be confounded with Kalami. (Paus.
iv. 31. § 3; Pol. v. 92; Leake, Morea, vol. i. p. 362, Peloponnesiaca, p. 183;
