(“Bukation”) Aitolia, Greece.
The most important modern village between Agrinion
and Thermon, N of Lake Trichonis, and the site of a
large Hellenistic fortress. It has been identified with
Phistyon and Bukation, both of which are located in
the region by inscriptions. The site is an isolated hill
sloping down on the S side to the plain which it commands. The city wall included a sizable area of the lower
ground, and appears to represent several building periods; the latest parts, such as the round towers, are comparable to the E wall at Thermon, dated to the 2d c. B.C.
