Demosthenes in the [speech] on the trierarch's equipment [mentions it]. It is a shrine of the 12 gods[1] in Bosporos.
Greek Original:
*)efi/eron: *dhmosqe/nhs e)n tw=| peri\ tou= trihrarxh/matos. i(ero/n e)sti tw=n ib# qew=n e)n *bospo/rw|.
Abridged from Harpokration, where the headword, a single word in the Suda, is correctly quoted from [Demosthenes] 50.17: e)f' *(iero/n; the speaker was ordered to sail "to Hieron".
Harpok. cites Timosthenes, On Harbours, for the gloss.
Contrary to A.T. Murray's note in the Loeb edition ("Hieron was on the eastern shore of the Cimmerian Bosporus (the strait between the Black Sea and the Sea of Asov)", this place was Hieron Chalkedonikon; see Barrington Atlas map 53 grid B2, and (in brief) N.G.L. Hammond and G.T. Griffith, A History of Macedonia ii (Oxford 1979) 575.
[1] For the 12 (Olympian) gods cf. kappa 1507.
