(Palatia) Phokis, Greece.
E of Kirrha noted in antiquity for the production of the
medicinal herb hellebore. It was destroyed by Philip
of Macedon in 346 B.C. but was rebuilt; it was captured
by the Romans under Otilius. Pausanias identifies it
with Homeric Kyparissos and mentions gymnasia and a
Sanctuary of Poseidon. At Palatia, on a promontory
near Aspra Spitia, foundations have been identified with
Antikyra by local inscriptions.
