Pleiades

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".
