EPIEIKIA Corinthia, Greece.

The Spartan army invaded the Corinthia by way of Epieikia in 394 B.C. to fight the opening battle of the Corinthian War along the nearby Longopotamos river. Two years later Epieikia was fortified by the Spartan Praxitas following another invasion of the region (Xen. Hell. 4.2.14, 4.13). The site is probably to be identified with the ruins of a small outpost above the F side of Kondita Ravine, where the Corinthian stream farthest W is located.
