 As Ellopia induced us to commence our description with Histiæa and Oreus, we shall proceed with the places continuous with these. The promontory Cenæum is near Oreus, and on the promontory is situated Dium,1 and Athenæ Diades, a town founded by Athenians, and overlooks the passage across the strait to Cynus. Canæ in Æolia received colonists from Dium. These places are situated near Histiea, and besides these Cerinthus, a small city, close to the sea. Near it is a river Budorus, of the same name as the mountain in Salamis on the side of Attica,
1 Kiepert accordingly places Dium near the modern Jaitra, but the Austrian map places it to the N. E. of Ploko Vuno.
