τὰ Σαμοθρηίκια τείχεα: forts securing for Samothrace a strip of coastland opposite the island; cf. ch. 59. 2; similarly Thasos (ch. 109. 2 n.; vi. 46. 2 n.; vi. 33. 1); and in Asia, Chios (i. 160) and Lesbos (v. 94; Thuc. iii. 50, iv. 52). Μεσαμβρίη: perhaps at Tekieh, to be distinguished from the town on the Euxine (iv. 93. 1; vi. 33. 2). Λίσος. The only river of any size passes through Dede-Agatch (Doriscus?), but there is a smaller stream near Cape Makri (Serreion), which may be the Lisus.
Γαλλαϊκή. Γαλαῖοι are mentioned in Thrace on the Athenian tribute lists (Hicks, 48, 64). Βριαντική: Liv. xxxviii. 41 ‘Priaticus campus’; Plin. H. N. iv. 41 ‘Priantae’. καὶ αὕτη: as well as Doriscus (ch. 59. 3) and Maroneia (ch. 109. 1). Κικόνων. The ‘just title’ of the Cicones (cf. ch. 59. 3 n.) is no doubt the earliest mention of Ismarus in Homer, Od. ix. 39.
