A city.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the related adjective] a)gxi/alos ["coastal"], [meaning] the one[2] near the sea.
Not all 'coastal' cities are surrounded by sea. For example, Alexandria is coastal but not surrounded by sea, whereas islands are both coastal and surrounded by sea. Sophocles [writes]: "son of Telamon and child of sea-girt Salamis".[3]
And elsewhere: "a famous tomb holds godlike Homer on a coastal cliff."[3]

Notes:
[1] On the coast of Cilicia; the "Anchiale" of alpha 396 (from sigma 122) and Stephanus of Byzantium. Barrington Atlas map 66 grid F3.
[2] This definite article is feminine in the Greek, no doubt presupposing 'city'.
