(“Kalamyde”) Selinos, Crete.
Roman, and possibly earlier, settlement 1 km NE of
the modern village. Remains on the site are confined to
a heavy scatter of sherds, but a short distance to the NE
are the remains of a fort built to defend Kantanos from
the W. Traces of the defense wall, ending in a hollow
circular bastion with inside entrance can be seen here.
