The question is now; what is the location of this kellion? Which number on the list ( see nr. 736) is it? There are 9 posibilities. I do not have a clue. hv

See the reaction: this is number 24 Kellion Aghios Nikolaos Dontas.

Keliotes send me this bl/w picture of the kellion (18-3):

    This one must be nr 24: in the list the name was wrongly translated in English: it must be Aghios Nikolaou Dontas and not Ioannis Dontas. This kellion is two km from Dafni, towards the west, in the “Dontas Gully” – about 350 meters above sea level.

    This kellion is gift of serbian king Vukasin Mrnjavcevic to Monastiry Simona Petra.
