When the Greek fleet was scattered on the voyage home from Troy
, Locrians from Thronium, a city on the river Boagrius, and Abantes from Euboea
, with eight ships altogether, were driven on the Ceraunian mountains. Settling here and founding the city of Thronium, by common agreement they gave the name of Abantis to the land as far as they occupied it. Afterwards, however, they were conquered in war and expelled by the people of Apollonia
, their neighbors. Apollonia
was a colony of Corcyra
, they say, and Corcyra
, and the Corinthians had their share of the spoils.
