Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


ASTREA (Ancient country) MACEDONIA
  Astraeum (Liv. xl. 24; Astraia, Steph. B. s.v.; Alstraion, Ptol. iii. 13. § 27), a town of Paeonia in Macedonia, which Leake identifies with Strunmitza. Aelian (H. An. xv. 1) speaks of a river Astraeus, flowing between Thessalonica and Berrhoea, which Leake supposes to be the same as the Vistritza. Tafel, however, conjectures that Astraeus in Aelian is a false reading for Axius. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. pp. 293, 466, seq.; Tafel, Thessalonica, p. 312, seq.)
