(Marusi) Attica, Greece.
Named for a sanctuary dedicated to the Euboian cult of
Artemis Amarysia, in the deme of Athmonon. Pausanias
) refers to a local legend that a Sanctuary of
Aphrodite Urania was founded there by a King Porphyrion, a name taken by Frazer to indicate a Phoenician
settlement. SW of Marusi, Lolling found two boundary
inscriptions for the Artemis Sanctuary, one archaic, the
other perhaps from a period of renovation under Herodes
Atticus. A reference to Amarysian games occurs in another inscription concerning a local township decree.
