located at the slopes of Mount Parthenion, was one of the most ancient and powerful towns of ancient Arcadia. This is where God Pan appeared to Pheidippides before the battle of Marathon in 490 BC against the Persians and promised his help in return for honoring him. The Athenians won the battle and built an altar to honor Pan at the foot of the Parthenon.
