Ancient place-names

Athene island

Near Epidamnus

Palamnos river

Palamnus (Palamnos, Scyl. p. 10), a river of Illyricum, which flowed into the sea near Epidamnus. This river has been identified with the Panyasus (Panuassou ekb., Ptol. iii. 13. § 3); but this latter corresponds better with the Genusus (Tjerma or Skumbi): the Palamnus is probably the same as the Dartsch or Spirnatza, to the S. of Durazzo.

Candavia mountain

Candavia (Kandao+ia, Hierosol. Itin.; Peut. Tab.: Elbassan), a mountain of Illyria. The Egnatian Way, commencing at Dyrrhachium, crossed this mountain, which lies between the sources of the river Genusus and the lake Lychnitis, and was called from this Via Candavia. (Strab. vii. p. 323.) Its distance from Dyrrhachium was 87 M. P.

Asparagium town

Asparagium, a town of Illyria, in the territory of Dyrrhachium, where Pompey was encamped for some time in his campaign against Caesar, B.C. 48. (Caes. B.C. iii. 30, 41, 76.)
