Hellenized town of the Siculi in the interior of Sicily between Henna and Agyrium (Diod. Sic. 14,78,6) north of Dittáino (ancient Chrysas; personification on Roman coins from A.), modern Assoro. Listed among the Delphian theorodokoi in around 200 BC. From the fanum on the road to Henna, Verres tried in vain to steal the statue of Chrysas (Cic. Verr. 2,4,96).
