Αρχαία τοπωνύμια


  Schiste (he schiste hodos, the name of the road leading from Delphi into Central Greece, was more particularly applied to the spot where the road divided into two, and which was called treis keleuthoi, reckoning the road to Delphi as one of the three. Of the other two roads, the NE. led to Daulis; the SE. parted into two, one leading to Trachis and Lebadeia, the other to Ambrysus and Stiris. At the spot where the three roads met was the tomb of Laius and his servant, who were here slain by Oedipus. It must have stood at the entrance of the Zimeno Derveni, or opening between the mountains Cirphis and Parnassus, which leads to Delphi. The road from this point becomes very steep and rugged towards Delphi, as Pausanias has described it. (Aeschyl. Oed. Tyr. 733; Eurip. Phoen. 38; Paus. ix. 2. § 4, x. 5. § 3; leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 105.)
