Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  A town of Crete, mentioned in the Homeric catalogue. (il. ii. 647.) This town, which no longer existed in the time of Strabo, was looked upon by some writers as the mother-city of the Ionian colony of the same name. (Ephorus, ap. Strab. xii. p. 573, xiv. p. 634; Schol. Apoll. Rhod. i. 186; Apollod. iii. 1, 2, 3; Plin. iv. 12.) Mr. Pasbley (Trav. vol. i. p, 269) explored the site of this Homeric city not far from Episkopiano, at which, considerable remains of walls of polygonal masonry, both of the acropolis and city are still to be seen. (Hock, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 15, 418.)
