An ancient settlement (oppidum) placed by Pliny the Elder on the coast of the Black Sea, between the rivers Hister (Danube) and Tyras (Dniester). In the Barrington Atlas, David Braund follows Kacharava 1991 in placing it tentatively in the vicinity of modern "Shabalata" in Ukraine.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
