PAROECO´POLIS (Παροικόπολις, Ptol. 3.13.30), a town of Sintice, in Macedonia, on the right of the river Strymon. Nigríta, on the road from Saloníki to Seres, was either TRISTOLUS (Τρίστολος, Ptol. l.c.) or Paroecopolis, for these are the only two towns besides Heracleia which Ptolemy assigns to Sintice. If Nigríta be assigned to Tristolus, Paroecopolis will be represented by Skaftscha, which lies to the N. of the former town. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 229.)
