PANDO´SIA (Πανδοσία: Eth. Πανδοσιεύς), an ancient colony of Elis (Dem. Halonnes. p. 84, Reiske), and a town of the Cassopaei in the district of Thesprotia in Epirus, situated upon the river Acheron. It is probably represented by the rocky height of Kastrí, on the summit of which are the walls of an acropolis, while those of the city descend the slopes on either side. (Strab. vii. p.324; Liv. 8.24 ; Justin, 12.2; Plin. Nat. 4.1 ; Steph. B. sub voce Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iv. p. 55.)
