Argolicus Sinus (d Argolikos kolpos), the gulf between Argolis and Laconia, but sometimes used, in a more extended sense, to indicate the whole sea between the promontory Malea in Laconia and the promontory Scyllaeum in Troezenia, thus including the Hermonicus Sinus. (Strab. viii. pp. 335, 368; Pol. v. 91; Ptol. iii. 16. § 10; Plin. iv. 5. s. 9.)
