This is the rendering of the Πτερωτὸν στρατόπεδον
It is twice mentioned by this author (2.3.13, 8.3.9), and by him only; once as having “its longest day of 18 hours, and one-half,” and being “distant from Alexandria to the westward 2 hours and one-sixth;” and again, as being, along with Banatia, Tameia, and Tuaesis, one of the four towns of the Vacomagi,--these lying north of the Caledonians, and north-east of the Venicontes.
It has been variously identified, viz. with Tayne
in Ross, with Burghead
in Murray, and with Edinburg.
None of these are certain.
