A city between Attica and Boiotia. Thucydides calls the place neuter, but Menander masculine.[1]
Greek Original:
*pa/naktos: po/lis metacu\ th=s *)attikh=s kai\ th=s *boiwti/as. *qoukudi/dhs de\ kai\ ou)dete/rws kalei= to\ xwri/on, *me/nandros de\ a)rrenikw=s.
From Harpokration s.v., commenting on Demosthenes 54.3 (web address 1) -- where the name is in the accusative case and its gender therefore indeterminable. The neuter version, Panakton, appears to be the more authentic.
[1] Thucydides 5.3.5 (web address 2) and 5.36.2 (web address 3); Menander fr. 461 Koerte, now 419 K.-A.
