The Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites


  Anthedos, a port on the Saronic Gulf, is named only by Pliny (HN 4.5) in a list of significant coastal toponyms: the Spiraion promontory and the ports Anthedos, Boukephalos, and Kenchreai. The progression in the list is from S to N. The narrow cove at the mouth of the Sellondas river (ancient Sellanys) on the S side of the Bay of Sophikon is the probable location of the harbor.
