ARCADIA WEB FORUM: Αρκαδικοί Τόποι - Localities of Arcadia: Kapsia-Κάψια

Kanella on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 01:34 am:

I wondered if any history buffs out there would know.... Apparently Kapsia/Kapsa (in Mantinea, Arcadia, outside Tripoli) was named as such because the original village was burnt by the Turks. My questions are:

1) What was the name of the old village?
2) Where was it located?
3) What is the story behind the razing of the old village?
4) When did it happen?

Any relevant info you have is greatly appreciated.
