The Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites
A town near Lake Boibeis, mentioned in Homer but not by later authors;
it belonged to Magnesia. The site is now generally taken to be the hill N of the
village of Kaprena near modern Glafira. Leake was able to trace the full circuit
of the walls, built of roughly shaped blocks in irregular courses, and reported
considerable remains of walls inside. Inscriptions found there indicate that the
town continued to be inhabited in the Classical period.

Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)
Glaphupai. A town of Thessaly, mentioned by Homer along with Boebe
and Iolcos (II. ii. 712; comp. Steph. B. s. v.), but of which the name does not
subsequently occur. Leake conjectures that it is represented by the Hellenic ruins
situated upon one of the hills above the modern village of Kaprena, between Boebe
and Iolcos. The entire circuit of the citadel on the summit of the hill may be
traced, and on its lower side part of the wall is still standing.
