Cissus (Mygdonia)

Macedonia and the Chalcidice

Cissus or Kissos (Ancient Greek: Κισσός)[1] was a town[2] of Amphaxitis,[3] Macedon, not far from Rhaecelus, which appears to have been the name of the promontory where Aeneas legendarily founded his city.[4] Cissus, along with Aeneia and Chalastra, contributed to the aggrandizement of Thessalonica (315 BC).[5] Cissus was the birthplace of Cisseus, a Thracian chief mentioned by Homer.[6]

There was also a mountain of the same name nearby, now called Mount Chortiatis,[1] on which were found the lion, ounce, lynx, panther, and bear.[7]
