This chapter discusses the settlements in Chalkis and Maroneia. Appian included Chalkis among the settlements he ascribed to Seleukos I. Chalkis on Belos was probably a settlement founded at the site of a native town called Qinnesrin and named for the Chalcidic peninsula. Chalkis was located on the east-west road from Antioch to Beroia and the north-south road from Apameia to Kyrhos. It was also 31 kilometers southwest of Beroia (Aleppo); it was near the Qoueiq River at the modern Qinnesrin. Ptolemy records a Maroneia in Chalcidice. The settlement was presumably named for the homonymous Thracian city. Maroneia was 30 miles east of Antioch near Daphne.
