Korythio is situated on the foothills of Mount Ktenias, six kilometers from Tripoli, it has about 2000 inhabitants. It is one of the more ancient towns of Arcadia. Here until recently, in Steno to be exact, were the headquarters of the municipality of Korythio. It has always had close relations with Tripoli and Tegea.
An enormously important archaeological discovery was made here in 1980 when a complex of four metallurgical furnaces and cleaning facilities was brought to light. The impressive thing is that these have been dated to early prehistoric times. They are robust installations that functioned up until the late Roman times. This whole area is of course tied to the events of the revolution, the Tsakones camped out here in order to participate in the siege of Tripoli.
