After Rhoeteium come Sigeium, a destroyed city, and the Naval Station and the Harbor of the Achaeans and the Achaean Camp and Stomalimne,1 as it is called, and the outlets of the Scamander; for after the Simoeis and the Scamander meet in the plain, they carry down great quantities of alluvium, silt up the coat, and form a blind mouth, lagoons, and marshes. Opposite the Sigeian Promontory on the Chersonesus are Eleussa2 and the temple of Protesilaüs, both of which I have mentioned in my description of Thrace.3

1 "Mouth-of-the-marsh."

2 "Eleussa" appears to be an error for "Eleus."

3 Book 7, Fr. 51, 54, 55.
