Crissaeus Sinus

Κρισσαῖος κόλπος). An arm of the Sinus Corinthiacus on the northern shore. It extends into the country of Phocis, and had at its head the town of Crissa, whence it took its name. Its modern name is the Gulf of Salona, from the modern city of Salona, the ancient Amphissa, which was the chief town of the Locri Ozolae and lay to the northeast of Delphi.
