the name of a province comprising the country about mount Haemus, from which it derived its name.
This province, of which Adrianopolis and Anchialus were the principal towns, is not mentioned until a late period of the Roman empire, when it is described by Ammianus Marcellinus as a distinct province in the north-east of Thrace. (Comp. Hierocl. p. 635; Notit. Imper. Or.
