[14] The port of Pellene is Aristonautae. Its distance from Aegeira on the sea is one hundred and twenty stades, and to Pellene from this port is half that distance. They say that the name of Aristonautae1 was given to that port because it was one of the habors into which the Argonauts entered.

1 The Greek word means “best sailors.”
