AMBRAKOS (Phidhokastro) S Epeiros, Greece.

The port of Ambrakia on the bank of a lagoon by the Gulf of Arta, where the foundations of a circuit wall ca. 1200 m long are awash. A gap in the foundation marks the exit of the harbor, which led into the course of the river Arachthos. It was a locked harbor with fortifications (Scylax 33 and Polyb. 4.61.7), and there was a small town there (StBiz. s.v.).


N.G.L. Hammond, Epirus (1967) 137f.
