KARA-ALI-BEY (“Maiandria”) S Albania.

On a hill in marshy ground near the coast, inland from Buthrotum, are remains of a powerful circuit wall with massive well-cut blocks, similar to that at Phoinike and built probably ca. 325-320 B.C. The name was attributed to Trojans who settled here en route to Latium. Pliny (HN 4.1.4) mentions it as being on the coast of Epeiros; it was probably on the Roman road, which followed the coast.
