Present location

Gianitsa Eleochoriou

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).

Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  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 of Kalami, at the distance of three-quarters of an hour NW. of Kalamata: the latter 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; Bollaye, Recherches, p. 105; Ross, Reisen im Peloponnes, p. 2.)
