Headword: *melantia/s
Adler number: mu,463
Translated headword: Melantias
Vetting Status: high
A Thracian village which many call Melitias, 102 stades distant from Byzantium. Beside it flows the Athyras river, which, after proceeding a little further and bending slightly in the direction of the Kaikia wind,[1] empties its flow into the Propontis; hence too the harbour-town at the end bears its name.

This material derives from Agathias, Histories 5.14 (where the headword appears in the accusative case, and he states the distance to be 140 stades).
