STRA´GONA

STRA´GONA (Σιραγόνα), a town in the southeastern part of Germany, either in the country of the Silingae or in that of the Diduni, on the northern slope of Mons Asciburgius. (Ptol. 2.11.28.) If the resemblance of names be a safe guide, we might identify it with Strigau, though this hardly agrees with the degrees in which it is placed by Ptolemy; whence others suppose it to have been situated at Strehlen, between Schweidnitz and Brieg.
