Information about the place (1)

Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Pindus (Pindos), one of the towns of the tetrapolis of Doris, situated upon a river of the same name, which flows into the Cephissus near Lilaea. It was also called Akuphas, as we learn from Strabo and from Theopompus (ap. Steph. B. s. v. Akuphas). In one passage Strabo says that Pindus lay above Erineus, and in another he places it in the district of Oetaea; it is, therefore, probable that the town stood in the upper part of the valley, near the sources of the river in the mountain. (Strab. ix. pp. 427, 434; Scymn. Ch. 591; Schol, ad Pind. Pyth. i. 121; Mel. ii. 3 ; Plin. iv. 7. s. 13; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 92.)
