This entry is derived from Harpokration s.v. Kalaureia, commenting on the place's appearance in Demosthenes, Letter 2.21, and citing Hecataeus (FGrH 1 F125) and Anticlides (FGrH 140 F9) for the information given). See generally OCD(4) s.v. Calauria.
The headword of the immediately preceding entry here in the Suda, Kalabria (kappa 187), has displaced the one that should have stood here. (Kalauria does occur in some Suda manuscripts but would be out of alphabetical order.) The pronunciation of the two names converged in Byzantine times.
[1] i.e. off the NE coast of the Peloponnese (Greece).
