DO´NACON (Δονακών), a village in the territory of Thespiae in Boeotia, where the river Narcissus rises. It is mentioned by Pausanias after noticing the river Olmius, and before describing Creusis and Thisbe. Leake places Donacon near a hamlet called Tatezá, at a spot “where there is a copious fountain surrounded by a modern enclosure, of which the materials are ancient squared blocks: in the cornfields above are many remains of former habitations.” (Paus. 9.31.7; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 501.)
