History[edit]

According to Pausanias, Seirae was an Arcadian city at the border between Cleitor and Psophis. The city was located near the Soron Forest and near the ruined settlement of Paos.[3] Seires was an independent community until 1997, when it joined the newly formed municipality of Aroania.
