A town of Macedonia, in the vicinity of Thessalonica, which contributed to the aggrandizement of that city.

Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Kissos: Khortiatzi. A mountain of Macedonia, on which were found the lion, ounce, lynx, panther, and bear. (Xenoph. De Venat. xi. 1.) There was a town of the same name not far from Rhaecelus, which appears to have been the name of the promontory where Aeneas founded his city. (Lycophr. 1236.) Cissus, along with Aeneia and Chalastra, contributed to people Thessalonica. (Strab. Epit. vii. p. 330; Dionys. i. 49.) Khortiatzi is the only high mountain which can be conceived to have been the haunt of the beasts of prey mentioned by Xenophon.
