PHALAE´SEAE (Φαλαισίαι: Eth. Φαλαισιεύς), a town of Arcadia, in the district Maleatis on the road from Megalopolis to Sparta, 20 stadia from the Hermaeum towards Belbina. Leake originally placed it near Gardhíki, but subsequently a little to the eastward of Bura, where Gell remarked some Hellenic remains among the ruins of the Buzéika Kalyvia. (Paus. 8.35.3; Steph. B. sub voce Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 298; Peloponnesiaca, p. 237.)
