The Thyretis Land where is Astros located between Sparta and Argos

Thucydides 2.27.1,2] “In the same summer, the Athenians displaced all the inhabitants of Aegina, men, women and children…. They did it out of hatred against the Athenians and because the Aeginians had helped them when the great earthquake had taken place and when the Helots had revolted. Thyreatis land is located on the border of Argeia land and Laconian and reaches the sea. “Some of the Aeginians settled there and the others scattered all over Greece.” / John Koutogiorgas “Αφιερώνεται στη Θυρεάτιδα Γή. Dedicated to Thyreatis Land.”
