Catastrophes of the place

Asine

The Argives laid waste to most of the cities because of their disobedience; those from Asine (this is a village in Argeia near Nauplia) were transferred by the Lacedaemonians to Messenia, where is a town that bears the same name as the Argolic Asine; for the Lacedaemonians, says Theopompos, took possession of much territory that belonged to other peoples and settled there all who fled to them and were taken in.(Strab. 8.6.11)
