Zoetia (Greek: Ζοιτία - Zoitia, also Ζοιτέα - Zoitea) was a city in ancient Arcadia, Greece. The settlement was founded by Paroreus, the youngest son of Tricolonus, a relative of Lycaon. He also settled Paroria which was 10 stadia (1.8 km) from Zoetia. When Pausanias visited the city in the 2nd century AD, it was already abandoned. There remained a temple of Demeter and Artemis then. The exact location of the settlement, which was about 50 stades from Megalopolis, is unknown.[1]
