SIBERE´NA

SIBERE´NA (Σιβερήνη: Sta Severina), a town of Bruttium situated in the mountains about 15 miles NW. of Crotona. The name is mentioned only by Stephanus of Byzantium (s. v.), who calls it an Oenotrian city, but it is probable that it is the same place which is now called Santa Severina, an appellation that is already noticed by Constantine Porphyrogenitus in the tenth century. It was at that time apparently a place of importance, but is now much decayed. (Const. Porph. de Adm. Imp. 2.10; Holsten. Obs. in Steph. Byz. s. v.)
