(“Asai”) Corinthia, Greece.
Theopompos (apud Steph. Byz., s.v. Ἀσαί
) recorded that Asai and
Mausos were large and populous towns. The ancient
name of the former may be reflected in the name of the
modern town of Assos on the Corinthian Gulf not far W
of Corinth. A large ancient site, occupied at least from
the 6th c. B.C. to the 5th-6th c. A.D., which is located ca.
one km S of Assos near a Church of Haghios Charalambos. A Roman bath was excavated there in the 1950s and
extensive remains of walls of houses and larger buildings
as well as poros sarcophagi can be seen in the vicinity.
