RHIZUS

RHIZUS (Ῥιζοῦς: Eth. Πιζούντιος), a town of Magnesia in Thessaly, whose inhabitants were transported to Demetrias upon the foundation of the latter city. (Strab. ix. pp. 436, 443; Steph. B. sub voce Plin. Nat. 4.9. s. 16.) We learn from Scylax (p. 24) that Rhizus was outside the Pagasaean gulf upon the exterior shore; but its exact position is uncertain. Leake places it at the ruins eastward of Nekchóri (Northern Greece, vol. iv. p. 383).
