a town in Crete, the foundation of which was attributed by an historian of the Augustan age (Vell. Paterc. 1.1) to Agamemnon.
Harduin (ad Plin.
4.12) proposed to read Mycenae for MYRINA
which is mentioned as a city of Crete in the text of Pliny (l.c.
). Sieber (Reise,
vol. ii. p. 280) believed that he had discovered the remains of this city at a place called Maca
on the river Armyró.
vol. i. p. 435.)
