A city by the Hellespont,[1] which Bochanus the Turk plundered in the time of the emperor Justinian.[2]
Greek Original:
*bo/sporos, po/lis peri\ to\n *(ellh/sponton, h(\n *bwxa/nos o( *tou=rkos e)pi\ *)ioustinianou= basile/ws e)po/rqhse.
Sometimes attributed to Menander Protector, but not accepted as such in the standard modern edition by R.C. Blockley; cf. beta 508.
[1] If 'by the Hellespont' is precise, this place is unknown; if it is imprecise, either the Thracian Bosporos (between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmora) or the Cimmerian Bosporos (between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov) is meant; cf. beta 402.
[2] Some would change 'Justinian' to 'Justin' here.
