(“Engyon”) Enna, Sicily.
A Sikel city
mentioned by Diodoros (4.79-80 and 16.72), Plutarch
. 20), Cicero (Verr
. 3.43), and Pliny (HN 3.91
From Diodoros we learn that it was 100 stades from
Agyrion. It was colonized by Rhodio-Cretans, who
brought with them the cult of the Great Mother. Some
scholars have identified this city with modern Troina,
others with Gangi or Nicosia. The most likely hypothesis
seems to be the identification with Gangi, where traces
of walls and buildings are preserved. The identification
with Troina is unlikely because this modern town is quite
far from the borders reached by Rhodio-Cretan penetration in this direction, and, moreover, the archaeological finds there are no earlier than the 5th c. B.C.
