) or PORTUS CHORDYLE (Plin. Nat. 6.4
), a place on the coast of Pontus, 40 or 45 stadia east of Hieron Oros or Yoros.
(Arrian, p. 17; Anon. p. 13.) Hamilton (Researches, &c.
vol. i. p. 248) identifies it with Akjah Káleh,
a ruined fort on a rocky promontory, half-way between Platana and Cape Yoros:
“it possesses a small open roadstead, called by the Turks a liman or port, to the east of the promontory.” The name occurs in the Table in the form Cordile.
There appears to be some confusion in Ptolemy (5.6
) about this place. [G.L
