Boukephalos

  Named both by Pliny (HN 4.5) and the geographer Ptolemy (3.16.12) as the next port S of Kenchreai on the Saronic coast of the Corinthia. Herodianus (Pros. 2) has an entry for Boukephalos as a harbor of Argolis and the name of the horse given to Alexander the Great by the Corinthian Demaratus. The Corinthian port is probably the broad, deep-water harbor now called Frankolimano at the SE edge of the Bay of Kenchreai opposite the island known in antiquity as Aspis.
