It was near Potokaki. There was an usual brown plate (the photo below) indicating the site, but telling you the truth I did not understand anything, because there was too much undergrowth, and I had no detailed guidebook. I just put the pictures then I took in 2002.

Not far from the sanctuary there was this small chapel.

The building did not seem old, but I think the broken slab used as pavement was Byzantine. It is possible it was brought from elsewhere or from an older building which was standing here.
