Modern Description: A paved road leading N from the E edge of modern Elateia leads in ca. 2.5 km to the Mycenaean cemetery. The road, now dirt, bears right (E) across the slope, and soon a few polygonal courses of masonry 200 m below the road signal the acropolis of ancient Elateia, unsignposted. What remains visible are tumbled stones from the circuit wall and, on the E end, traces of a rectangular inner fortress of more regular masonry. The site commands a good view over the Kefissos valley.
