It lay 22 miles west of Selymbria, on a small peninsulaPLINY, 4.18, of the bay which bears its name, and was built like an amphitheatre, on the declivity of a hill.DIODORUS, 16.76, It was originally a Samian colony,Marcian, p. 29; Plutarch, Qu. Gr. 56 and, according to George Syncellus, was founded about 599 BCE.George Syncellus, Chronicle, p. 238. German archaeologist Theodor Panofka, however, makes it contemporary with Samothrace, that is about 1000 BCE.DGRG, Perinthus, It was particularly renowned for its obstinate defence against Philip V of MacedonDIODORUS, 16.74-77, Plutarch Phoc. 14. At that time it appears to have been a more important and flourishing town even than Byzantium; and being both a harbour and a point at which several main roads met, it was the seat of an extensive commerce.Procopius de Aed. 4.9. This circumstance explains the reason why so many of its coins are still extant; from which we learn that large and celebrated festivals were held here. According to John Tzetzes, it bore at an early period the name of Mygdonia (Μυγδονία) and at a later one, but not before the fourth century CE, it assumed the name of Heraclea or Heracleia (Ἡράκλεια);Tzetzes, Chil. 3.812. which we find sometimes used alone, and sometimes with additions Heraclea Thraciae and Heraclea Perinthus.Procopius, B. Vand. 1.12; Zosimus 1.62; Justin, 16.3; Eutrop. 9.15; Amm. Marc. 22.2; Itin. Ant. pp. 175, 176, 323. Justinian restored the old imperial palace, and the aqueducts of the city. Coins of Perinthus have also survived.WEB,weblink Perinthos, Thrace - Ancient Greek Coins, Wildwinds.com, 13 February 2019, Its site is near modern Marmara EreÄŸlisi, in Turkey.BARRINGTON, 52, DARE, 21399,
