Notes:
The principal part of this entry is abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., commenting on the appearance of this toponym in Demosthenes 3.4.
Heraion Teichos ('Fort Hera') was a colony of Samos in the Propontis (Sea of Marmara), founded around 600 BCE. See also Herodotos 4.90.
[1] Differently accented, here, from the Heraion of the headword (which is an adjective); in any case, presumably here in the sense of a Hera-shrine.
