Headword: Ankuranôn polis
Adler number: alpha,259
Translated headword: Ankyrans' city, Ancyrans' city
Vetting Status: high
[Note] that the present Ankyrans were called of old Hellenogalatians.
Greek Original:
Ankuranôn polis: hoti hoi nun Ankuranoi Hellênogalatai palai elegonto.
The headword phrase is presumably quoted from somewhere.
Ankyra is the present-day Ankara. See already alpha 257 (with gamma 21), and sigma 1067.
The 'Hellenogalatians' are of course the Galatians (called in Livy 'Gallograeci', and see gamma 39), Kelts who settled in central Asia Minor in 279 BCE and after.
