VOLVI (Village) THESSALONIKI
Artemisium. A fortress in Macedonia, built by the emperor Justinian, at the distance of 40 miles from Thessalonica, and at the mouth of the river Rechius. (Procop. de Aedif. iv. 3.) The Rechius, as Tafel has shown, is the river, by which the waters of the Lake Bolbe flow into the sea, and which Thucydides (iv. 103) refers to, without mentioning its name. (Tafel, Thessalonica, pp. 14, seq., 272, seq.)
