Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


KROMI (Ancient city) FALESSIA
  Cromnus, Kromoi, Kromnos, Kromna. A town of Arcadia on the frontiers of Messenia, the inhabitants of which were removed to Megalopolis, on the foundation of the latter city in B.C. 371. Its territory is called Cromitis (Kromitis) by Pausanias. It is placed by Boblaye at Neockhorio, but by Leake at Samara, a little westward of Londari, since the latter writer conceives it to have been on the route leading from Megalopolis to Carnasium, and not on the one leading to Messene.
