PHALYCUM (Φάλυκον), a town of Megaris mentioned by Theophrastus (Hist. Pl. 2.8), is clearly the same place as the Alycum (Ἄλυκον) of Plutarch, who relates that it derived its name from a son of Sciron, who was buried there. (Thes. 32.) It perhaps stood at the entrance of the Scironian pass, where Dodwell (vol. ii. p. 179) noticed some ancient vestiges, which he erroneously supposed to be those of Tripodiscus. [TRIPODISCUS]
