ΓΑΖΩΡΟΣ (Αρχαία πόλη) ΣΕΡΡΕΣ
Gazorus (Gasoros, Ptol. iii. 13. § 31; Gazoros, Steph. B.) A town of the Edoni in Macedonia, and, probably, the same place as the Graepo of the Peutinger Table. Gasorus, therefore, probably stood between Tragilus and Euporia, towards the NW. end of Mons Pangaeus.
ΜΥΡΚΙΝΟΣ (Αρχαία πόλη) ΣΕΡΡΕΣ
Murkinos, Murkinnos, Eth. Murkinios. A place belonging to the Edoni, on the left bank of the Strymon, which was selected by Histiaeus of Miletus for his settlement. It offered great advantages to settlers, as it contained an abundant supply of timber for shipbuilding, as well as silver mines. (Herod. vii. 23.) Aristagoras retired to this place, and, soon after landing, perished before some Thracian town which he was besieging. (Herod v. 126; Thuc. iv. 102.) Afterwards, it had fallen into the hands of the Edoni; but on the murder of Pittacus, chief of that people, it surrendered to Brasidas. (Thuc. iv. 107.) The position of Myrcinus was in the interior, to the N. of M. Pangaeus, not far from Amphipolis. (Leake, North. Greece, vol. iii. p. 181.)
