Omphalion

  A precipitous ridge, overlooking the gorge of the Suhe river, is fortified with a circuit wall and powerful towers. The site controls the entry from the Drin valley to the high plateau of Polican, the territory probably of the Omphales, a Chaonian tribe. It is mentioned by Ptolemy (3.13.5).
