CO´RIUM

CO´RIUM (Κόριον: Eth. Κορήσιος, Steph. B. sub voce: Kurná), a town of Crete, near which was a temple to Athena (comp. Paus. 8.21.4; Cic. N. D. 3.23) and lake (λίμνη Κορησία). As there is no other lake in the island, Mr. Pashley (Trav. vol. i. p. 73; comp. Hoeck, Kreta, vol. i. p. 432; Sieber, Reise, vol. ii. p. 467), from the identity of this physical feature, fixes the position near the small lake Kurna, at the foot of the hills on the S. edge of the plain which runs along the shore from Armyro eastward.
