Argolis or the Argolid (Greek: Περιφερειακή ενότητα Αργολίδας, Αργολίδα; Ἀργολίς Argolís in
ancient Greek and Katharevousa) is one of the regional units of Peloponnese,
situated in the eastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula.
Argolis has land borders with Arcadia to the west and
southwest, Corinthia to the north, and the Islands regional unit (Troezen area)
to the east. Ancient Argolis included Troezen.
Most arable land lies in the central part of Argolis. Its
primary agricultural resources are oranges and olives. Argolis has a coastline
on the Saronic Gulf in the northeast and on the Argolic Gulf in the south and
southeast. Notable mountains ranges are the Oligyrtos in the northwest, Lyrkeio
and Ktenia in the west, and Arachnaio and Didymo in the east.
