LARISSA (Λάρισσα), a city of Syria, placed by Ptolemy in the district of Cassiotis, in which Antioch was situated (5.15.16), but probably identical with the place of the same name which, according to Strabo, was reckoned to Apamia (xvi. p. 572), and which is placed in the Itinerary of Antoninus 16 M. P. from Apamia, on the road to Emesa. D'Anville identifies it with the modern Kalaat Shyzar, on the left bank of the Orontes, between Hamah and Kalaat el-Medyk or Apamia.
