The Pelopnnisos of southern Greece consists of an oval-shaped mountain mass with peaks rising to 7,800 feet (2,400 metres) and four peninsular prongs, which point southward toward the island of Crete (Modern Greek: Krti). At its heart are the arid limestone plateaus of Arkada (Arcadia) as its shown in the map of Southern Greece, where streams disappear underground into the soluble rock and from which the barren upland of the Tygetos (Tayetos) Mountains, reaching an elevation of 7,800 feet, extends southward to form the backbone of one of the southern peninsulas.
