Eth. Sanios, Senaios, Sanaios. A colony of Andros, situated upon the low, undulating ground, forming the isthmus which connects the peninsula of Acte with Chalcidice, through which the canal of Xerxes passed. Masses of stone and mortar, with here and there a large and squared block, and foundations of Hellenic walls, which are found upon this Provlaka or neck of land, mark the site of ancient Sane, which was within Acte and turned towards the sea of Euboea.
