Strabo

Asterium

Next he (Homer) speaks of the country subject to Eurypylus:
"and those who held the fountain Hypereia, and those who held Asterium and the white summits of Titanus."
...The fountain Hypereia is in the middle of the city of the Pheraeans, which belonged to Eumelus. It is absurd, therefore, to assign the fountain to Eurypylus. Titanus (White earth) was named from the fact in the case there; for the region near Arne and Aphetae has white soil. Asterium, also, is not far from these.
