Bolbe lake

  Bolbe (He Bolbe limne), a lake in Mygdonia in Macedonia, at no great distance from the sea. (Aeseh. Pers. 486; Scylax, p. 27; Thuc. i. 58, iv. 103; Cantacuz. ii. 25.) The lake empties itself into the Strymonic gulf by means of a river flowing through the pass called Aulon or Arethusa. (Thuc. iv. 103.) The name of this river is not mentioned by Thucydides, but it is evidently the same as the Rechius (Hpechios) of Procopius (de Aedif. iv. 4). Among the smaller streams flowing into the lake we find mention of the Ammites (Ammites) and Olynthiacus (Olunthiakos). (Athen. viii. p. 334, e.) The perch (labrach) of the lake was particularly admired by the gastronomic poet Archestratus. (Athen. vii. p. 311, a.) The lake is now called Besikia. It is about 12 miles in length, and 6 or 8 in breadth. (Clarke, Travels, vol. ii. 3. p. 376; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. pp. 170, 231, 462; Tafel, Thessalonica, p. 14, seq.)
