Thyraeum or Thyraion (Ancient Greek: Θυραῖον) was a city in ancient Arcadia, Greece, in the district Cynuria. According to Greek mythology, Thyraeum was founded by Thyraeus, a son of Lycaon. It was already ruined in the 2nd century, when it was visited by Pausanias. It was near Hypsus (present Stemnitsa), Zoetia and Paroria.
