HERMONACTIS VICUS

HERMONACTIS VICUS (Ἑρμώνακτος Κώμη, Strab. vii. p.306; Ptol. 3.10.14), a place in Sarmatia Europaea, near the mouth of the Tyras, where was the tower of Neoptolemus (Strab. l.c. comp. Anon. Peripl. p. 10), perhaps a lighthouse. In this neighbourhood, not long since, the remains of an old tower were found. (Köler, Mém. de l'Acad. de St. Petersb. vol. x. p. 580.)
