Daphnus

DAFNOUS (Ancient city) LOKRIDA
Daphnous: Eth. Daphnountios, Daphnousios. A city on the Euboean sea, originally belonging to Phocis, which thus extended from the Corinthian gulf to the Euboean sea. Its narrow territory separated the Locri Epicnemidii from the Locri Opuntii; but it was afterwards assigned to the Opuntii. The town was in ruins in the time of Strabo, who fixes its site by describing it as distant 20 stadia from Cynus and 120 from Elateia, and as having a harbour.

Tarphe

TARFI (Ancient city) LOKRIDA
  Eth. Tarphaios. A town of the Locri Epicnemidii, mentioned by Homer (Il. ii. 533). It was situated upon a height in a fertile and woody country, and was said to have derived its name from the thickets in which it stood. In the time of Strabo it had changed its name into that of Pharygae (Pharugai), and was said to have received a colony from Argos. It contained a temple of Hera Pharygaea. It is probably the modern Pundonitza.
