ANAPHLYSTUS

ANAPHLYSTUS (Ἀνάφλυστος: Eth. Ἀναφλύστιος: Anáuyso), a demus of Attica, belonging to the tribe Antiochis, on the W. coast of Attica, opposite the island of Eleussa, and a little N. of the promontory of Sunium. It was a place of some importance. Xenophon recommended the erection of a fortress here for the protection of the mines of Sunium.
