(“Pharygai”) Boiotia, Greece.
The site of the mediaeval fortress of Boudonitsa, which
incorporated elements of Hellenic construction, including a massive gateway. The remains have been identified by some as those of ancient Pharygai, a town traditionally founded by Argives who brought with them the worship
of Hera Pharygaia. Philippson disagreed on the grounds
that Pharygai is not known to have been an important
Greek fortress as these ruins would suggest. Naryka,
also suggested for this site, is now thought to be at Rengini.
