Modern Description: In the narrow valley below Daphni, and one hour from Geraki, is a place called Nerotrivi: here there are many Greek walls of large cut limestone blocks laid in rough courses, and some still stand to a height of about two metres. One building measures 9.80 by 6.15 metres, and black glazed pottery is common amongst the ruins which occupy a considerable area. In the gully leading into the valley from the monastery is a small water-channel cut in the rock, .33 m. wide and .31 m. deep. This site, which is approximately the required distance from Geronthrai, is most probably that of Selinos. (Wace and Hasluck 1908/9). On a Palaiokastro hilltop nearby, fortress traces were explored by Zavvou, Themos and Prent, 2010.
