Sinti (Thuc, ii. 98; Steph. B. s. v.; Liv. xlii. 51), a Thracian tribe
who occupied the district lying between the ridge called Cercine and the right
or W. bank of the Strymon, in the upper part of the course of that river, which
was called from thence Sintice (Sintike, Ptol. iii. 13. § 30). When Macedonia
was divided into four provinces at the Roman conquest, Sintice was associated
with Bisaltia in the First Macedonia, of which Amphipolis was the capital (Liv.
xlv. 29). It contained the three towns Heracleia, Paroecopolis, Tristolus.
