Theisoa. Y. Pikoulas reports on an investigation of the defensive system of Theisoa conducted under the aegis of the Mt Lykaion project, which led to the identification of at least 5 isolated patrol stations in the S part of the territory of Theisoa. These are located at Elliniaki (ca. 500m NNW of the cemetery of the village of Ano Kotilion), Pyrgouli (ca. 300m below and E of the road, 1km from the village), Alonaki (2km N of the village, immediately W of the road), Vrachos tou Vidi (almost 2.5m NNW of the village) and Gourtsoules. They likely date after the M4thCt BC, and it is argued that they formed a network controlling access to the basin of Megalopolis from the W.
