SCYDRA

SCYDRA (Σκύδρα: Eth. Σκυδραῖος), a town of Emathia in Macedonia, which Ptolemy places between Tyrissa and Mieza. (Steph. B. sub voce Ptol. 3.13.39; Plin. Nat. 4.10. s. 17.) It is perhaps the same as the station Scurio in the Jerusalem Itinerary (p. 606), where it is placed between Edessa and Pella, at the distance of 15 miles from either. (Cramer, Ancient Greece, vol. i. p. 228.)
