STEPHANE (Στεφάνη), a small port town on the coast of Paphlagonia, according to Arrian (Peripl. P. E. p. 15) 180 stadia east of Cimolis, but according to Marcian (p. 72) only 150. The place was mentioned as early as the time of Hecataeus as a town of the Mariandyni (Steph. B. sub voce Στεφανίς), under the name of Stephanis. (Comp. Scylax, p. 34; Ptol. 5.4 § 2.) The modern village of Stephanio or Estifan probably occupies the site of the ancient Stephane.
