Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  A fortress in the Pieric hollow, and the first place after the passage of the Strymon. It is identified with the post station of Orfana, on the great road from Greece to Constantinople, where Greek coins have been often found, and, among other small productions of Hellenic art, oval sling bullets of lead, or the glandes of which Lucan (vii. 512) speaks in his description of the battle of Pharsalia. These are generally inscribed with Greek names in characters of the best times, or with some emblem, such as a thunderbolt.
