City in Greece south of Berroia (qq.v.) that guarded the road to Larissa (q.v.), where the middle course of the Haliakmon River runs through a broad plain. Its name may derive from its settlement by Serbs (q.v.) under the protection of Heraklios (q.v.). The city's strategic location explains its capture and recapture, beginning with Basil II's war with Bulgaria (qq.v.). It fell to the Ottomans (q.v.) in the late 14th century.
