Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Alopeconnesus (Alopekonnesos), a town on the western coast of the Thracian Chersonesus. It was an Aeolian colony, and was believed to have derived its name from the fact that the settlers were directed by an oracle to establish the colony, where they should first meet a fox with its cub. (Steph. B. s.v.; Scymnus, 29; Liv. xxxi. 16; Pomp. Mela, ii. 2.) In the time of the Macedonian ascendancy, it was allied with, and under the protection of Athens. (Dem. de Coron. p. 256, c. Aristocr. p. 675.)
