Ancient place-names

Astrum town

Astrum (Astron: Astro). A town in Cynuria on the coast, and the first town in Argolis towards the frontiers of Laconia. It is mentioned by Ptolemy alone (iii. 16. ยง 11), but is conjectured by Leake to have been the maritime fortress in the building of which the Aeginetae were interrupted by the Athenians in the eighth year of the Peloponnesian war. (Thuc. iv. 57.) The place was situated on a promontory, which retains its ancient name. Here there are still considerable remains of an ancient wall. (Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 484, seq.; Ross, Peloponnes, p. 162.)
