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 (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, 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.)
