Piacus
(66 words)

[German version]

(Πίακος/Píakos). City in Sicily (Steph. Byz. s.v. Π.), presumably to the northwest of Catania at Adrano in the Mendolito quarter. Finds of coins suggest this location: bronze (425-420 BC) and silver (c. 400 BC) issues as well as an exemplar showing the double Piacinus/Adran legend.
