TRIZIN (Ancient city) GREECE
An account of the conquest of Peloponnesus by the Dorians, which is said to have taken place under the guidance of the Heracleidae, is related elsewhere. (Dict. of Biogr. art. Heracleidae.) In the historical period the whole of the eastern and southern parts of Peloponnesus were in the possession of Dorians. Beginning with the isthmus of Corinth, there was first Megara, whose territory extended north of the isthmus from sea to sea; next came Corinth, and to its west Sicyon; south of these two cities were Phlius and Cleonae: the Argolic peninsula was divided between Argos, Epidaurus, Troezen, and Hermione -the last of which, however, was inhabited by Dryopes, and not by Dorians.
