and a station on the road from Heracleia to Philippi which passed round the S. side of Lake Prasias or Cercinitis; according to the Tabular Itinerary, 17 M. P. from Heracleia.
This distance, combined with the name, seems to indicate that it stood at a ferry across the lake; perhaps at the spot where the lake first begins to narrow three or four miles to the NW. of Amphipolis; but more probably on the W. side of the lake, because Ptolemy (3.13.35
) reckons it among the cities of Bisaltia. (Leake, Northern Greece,
vol. iii. p. 228.)
