Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)

Cyrrhus

  Kurrhos, Kurios. A town in Macedonia. Sitalces penetrated into Macedonia to the left of Cyrrhus and Pella. (Thuc. ii. 100.) Hence it would seem that Cyrrhus was at no great distance from the latter city. It is probably the same place as the Scurio of the Jerusalem Itinerary, and the present Vistritza. In Leake's map a Paleokastro, a little to the right of the road between Pella and Edessa, occupies the site of Cyrrhus.
