LESSA (Λῆσσα), a village of Epidauria, upon the confines of the territory of Argos, and at the foot of Mount Arachnaeum. Pausanias saw there a temple of Athena. The ruins of Lessa are situated upon a hill, at the foot of which is the village of Lykurió. On the outside of the walls, near the foot of the mountain, are the remains of an ancient pyramid, near a church, which contains some Ionic columns. (Paus. 2.25.10; Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 419; Boblaye, Récherches, &c. p. 53; Curtius, Peloponnesos, vol. ii. p. 418.)
