HYPERTELEATUM (Ὑπερτελέατον), a place in the territory of the Laconian Asopus, at the distance of 50 stadia from the latter town, containing a temple of Asclepius. The French Commission discovered on the coast below the village of Demónia some remains of the inclosure of this temple on a rock artificially cut, with many tombs excavated in the rock, and at 500 steps from the temple, nearer Demónia, a fine source of water. (Paus. 3.22.10; Boblaye, Recherches, &c. p. 98; Leake, Peloponnesiaca, p. 168; Curtius, Peloponnesos, vol. ii. p. 294.)
