Paeon (Thrace)

Paeon or Paion (Ancient Greek: Παιών) was an ancient Greek[1] city located in ancient Thrace, on the west coast of the Thracian Chersonesus. It is cited in the Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax, in the third position of its recitation of the towns of the Thracian Chersonesus, along with Cardia, Ide, Paeon, Alopeconnesus, Araplus, Elaeus and Sestos.[2]

Its site is tentatively located near Ece Liman, Turkey.[3][4]
