 After the river Axius is the city Thessalonica, formerly called Therma. It was founded by Cassander, who called it after the name of his wife, a daughter of Philip Amyntas. He transferred to it the small surrounding cities, Chalastra, Ænea, Cissus, and some others. Probably from this Cissus came Iphidamas, mentioned in Homer, ‘whose grandfather Cisseus educated him,’ he says, ‘in Thrace,’ which is now called Macedonia. EPIT.
