Modern Description: A classical polygonal wall fortifies the cemetery hill of Elaiochori (Giannitsa until 1957). There are traces of the settlement in Perivolakia, the hamlet just to the north, and a stretch of ancient carriage road. A Roman period inscription ( IG V,1, 1369) supports the identification with Kalamai. (info in Greek at https://aristomenismessinios.blogspot.gr/2013/07/blog-post_1419.html)
