On returning from Ceryneia to the high road, if you go along it for a short distance you may turn aside again to Bura
, which is situated on a mountain to the right of the sea. It is said that the name was given to the city from a woman called Bura
, who was the daughter of Ion, son of Xuthus, and of Helice. When the god wiped off Helice from the face of the earth, Bura
too suffered a severe earthquake, so that not even the ancient images were left in the sanctuaries.
