A city of Euboia, situated in Chalkidian [sc. territory].
Greek Original:
Argousa: polis tês Euboias en têi Chalkidikêi keimenê.
Abbreviated from Harpokration s.v., commenting on the appearance of this toponym in Demosthenes 21 (at chs. 132 and 164) and citing the local historian Aristoteles of Chalkis [Myth, Place] (FGrH 423 F1). The name, all other sources (including Stephanus of Byzantium) agree, was Argoura, not the Suda's Argousa (or in one manuscript Argousai).
For Euboia see generally epsilon 3382; for Chalkis see under chi 43 and chi 46. Argoura, strictly speaking, was not a city (polis) but a sub-polis settlement: see K. Reber, M.H. Hansen and P. Ducrey in M.H. Hansen and T.H. Nielsen (eds.), An Inventory of Archaic and Classical Poleis (Oxford 2004) 644.
