MELLISURGIS a place in the road from Thes salonica to Apollonia of Mygdonia, which occurs in two of the Itineraries (Itin. Anton.; Peut. Tab.), at a distance of 20 M. P. from Thessalonica. It still preserves its ancient name in the usual Romaic form of Melissurgús, and is inhabited by honeymakers, as the word implies. (Leake, North. Greece, vol. iii. p. 461; Tafel, de Viae Egnat. Part. Orient. p. 5.)
