Today known as Drepano (Αιγαίο_Πέλαγος). I am not certain whether that Wikipedia entry suffices for a reference. Drepano is located on the tip of Sithônia, of the Chalkidike.

As a reference, I would suggest a recent Greek thesis on toponyms in the Chalkidike available on scribd,ΓΚΙΛΗΣ-ΟΔΥΣΣΕΑΣ-Χαλκιδικη-Πόλεις-και-πολίσματα-2010, p.88
