ITHOME (Phanarion) Thessaly, Greece.

A town in the Hestiaiotis region, within a rectangle formed by the fortified cities of Gomphoi, Trikka, Pelinnaion, and Metropolis; it merged with the last of these in the 4th c. B.C. The site was located by Leake on a ridge between Metropolis and Gomphoi, now marked by a Byzantine-Turkish castle. The only remains of the ancient city are the ashlar blocks in the NW part of the fortification wall.


Strab. 9.5.17; W. M. Leake, Nor. Gr. (1835) IV 510; F. Stählin, Das hellenische Thessalien (1924) 129.
