PHARKADON Thessaly, Greece.

The Classical city has been identified with fortifications on an isolated hill above the modern town of Klokoto. The walls, of ashlar with some Byzantine repairs, circle the W and lower of two peaks. The line of the wall runs E along the saddle but turns S to the plain without enclosing the higher peak. The city presumably extended into the plain but has left no visible remains.


Strab. 9.5.17; Livy 41.8; C. D. Edmonds in BSA 5 (1898-99) 20M. Also F. Stählin, Das hellenische Thessalien (1924) 116.
