  Mentioned by Herodotos in the account of the storm that wrecked part of the Persian fleet on the E coast of the Magnesia peninsula. Locations both N and S of Cape Pori have been proposed, but the name is probably correctly assigned to an acropolis near Keramidhi. The walls are preserved to a maximum height of seven courses.

  Kasthanaia, Kastanaia, Eth. Kasthanaios. A town of Magnesia in Thessaly, at the foot of Mt. Pelium, with a temple of Aphrodite Casthanitis. It is mentioned by Herodotus in his account of the terrible storm which the fleet of Xerxes experienced off this part of the coast. Leake places it at some ruins, near a small port named Tamukhari. It was from this town that the chesnut tree, which still abounds on the eastern side of Mt. Pelium, derived its name in Greek and the modern languages of Europe.
