(Συκύριον; Sykýrion). Place in the Dotium region at the western end of the Tempe valley, used by Perseus  as a permanent camp for actions against the Roman army in the third of the Macedonian Wars, in 171 BC (Liv. 42,54; 62; 64; 67). The location is uncertain, the assignment of the name to modern S. (formerly Makrokeserli) is arbitrary.
