Notes:
[1] The present-day Sakarya; Barrington Atlas map 3 grid B2; OCD4 s.v.
[2] For this meaning (or implication) of the adjective koilos cf. Thucydides 7.84.4. An alternative way to construe it here is "with deep banks".
[3] The quotation is slightly modified from Polybius 21.37.4, on events of 189 BCE: a group of Galloi (eunuchs) arrive from celebrating the rites of the Great Mother at Pessinus and are hospitably entertained by the Roman commander Gnaeus (sic) Manlius Vulso. (The name is correct, and the quotation longer, at gamma 41.)
