ALMO´PIA

ALMO´PIA (Ἀλμωπία), a district in Macedonia inhabited by the ALMOPES (Ἀλμῶπες), is said to have been one of the early conquests of the Argive colony of the Temenidae. Leake supposes it to be the same country now called Móglena, which bordered upon the ancient Edessa to the NE. Ptolemy assigns to the Almopes three towns, Horma (Ὅρμα), Europus (Εὔρωπος), and Apsalus (Ἄψαλος (Thuc. 2.99; Steph. B. sub voce Lycophr. 1238; Ptol. 3.13.24; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 444.)
