1 Herodotus (Hdt. 1.145) has twelve Ionian cities and makes the connection between Achaia and Ionia. Helice and Bura are specially mentioned there as two places of refuge of the Ionians from the Achaeans. Cp. Strabo 14.1.20 for the festival celebrated near Mycale.
2 See chap. 48.3 for earthquake and tidal wave. On the connection of Helice and Bura with the Ionians see Strabo 8.7.2 and 4: "after Bura, Helice, whither the Ionians fled for refuge after they were conquered in battle by the Achaeans, and whence at last they were expelled."
