A modern location in Sicily that has been associated with the location of the ancient settlement of Krastos.

In the Barrington Atlas, an association between the area of Castronuovo di Sicilia and the location of the ancient settlement of Krastos is suggested (although with a question mark). However, Manni 1981 does not support this theory and sees Castronuovo as a probable location for the ancient Petra instead. The BTCGI labels Krastos as an "unidentified place".
