Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


Saminthus, Saminthos. A town in the Argeia, on the western edge of the Argive plain, which was taken by Agis, when he marched from Phlius into the territory of Argos in B.C. 418. (Thuc. v. 58.) Its position is uncertain. Leake, who supposes Agis to have marched over Mt. Lyrceium and the adjoining hills, places it at Kutzopodhi (Koutsopodi) (Morea, vol. ii. p. 415), and Ross at the village of Pheklia (Phychtia), on the southern side of Mt. Tricaranon, across which is the shortest pass from the Phliasia into the Argive plain.
