ORTHAGO´RIA

ORTHAGO´RIA (Ὀρθαγορία), a town of Macedonia, of which coins are extant. Pliny (4.11. s. 18) says that Ortagurea was the ancient name of Maroneia; but we learn from an ancient geographer (Hudson, Geogr. Min. vol. iv. p. 42) that Orthagoria [p. 2.497]was the ancient name of Stageira, to which accordingly the coins are assigned. (Eckhel, vol. ii. p. 73.)
