Odysseus, in the departing voyage [sc. from Troy], sailed into Maroneia, and when he could not reach an agreement regarding disembarkation from the ships, fought it out with them in a battle and seized all their riches. In that place, since Hekabe was cursing the army and inciting disturbances, he killed her with volleys of stones and hid her next to the sea, calling the place 'Bitch's gravestone'.

cf. hypothesis to Homer, Odyssey Book 1; Stephanus of Byzantium 394.11 (defining it as 'a place in Libya' but noting that 'there is another location'); and again kappa 2723 (q.v.). In the present entry the mention of (sc. Thracian) Maroneia (mu 222) adds an extra complication.
For Hekabe/Hecuba see generally epsilon 337 and OCD(4) s.v. Hecuba.
