The location of the ancient city Paos has been found near the modern village, of which the remainder remains to be excavated. Ancient artifacts and remains of the walls have been found. It had a perimeter of 516 m, and had an almost triangular shape with its point facing west with its acropolis in the middle and some ancient buildings to the south, its springs used to be to the northeast with an aqueduct north of the old city. It was said that Euphorion from Paos gave lodging to the Dioscuri, and ever since kept open house for all men. Paos in later years annexed with the neighboring Kleitor. Pausanias wrote that Paos was a ruined settlement near the city of Seirai.
