The arcadic Psophis
Psophis, a city in North-west Arcadia called Azania in antiquity, is situated at the modern village of Tripotama and belongs administratively to the county of Kalavryta. In 1998 the 6th Ephorate of Antiquities of Patras, began a project aiming at the investigation and development of the site. The project included drawing of the existing architectural remains of the ancient city, aerial-photography, stripping up vegetation from the city walls, as well as a survey of the area. The ancient city was situated at the junction of three rivers, hence its name Tripotama. Its fortification encloses an area of 420 acres. The city seems to have prospered during the Classical and Hellenistic periods. Pausanias makes mention of its sanctuaries. It is hoped that further research in Psophis will greatly advance our knowledge of a region which has remained more or less in the dark for many decades.
