Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


Antigonea, Eth. Antigoneus, Antigonensis. A town of Macedonia in the district Crusis in Chalcidice, placed by Livy between Aeneia and Pallene. (Liv. xliv. 10.) It is called by Ptolemy (iii. 13. § 38) Psaphara (Psaphara) probably in order to distinguish it from Antigoneia in Paeonia.


  Gigonis akra (Etym. Mag. s. v. Egonis, Ptol. iii. 13. § 23). A promontory on the coast of the Crossaea, in Macedonia, with a town Gigonus (Gigonos, Steph. B.), to which the Athenian force, which had been employed against Perdiccas, marched in three days from Beraea. (Thuc. i. 61.) It appears, from the order of the names in Herodotus (vii. 123), that it was to the S. of Cape Aeneium, the great Karaburnu; hence its situation was nearly that of Cape Apanomi.
