This chapter describes the settlements in Ainos, Amphipolis, Antioch near the Tauros, Antioch on the Euphrates, Arsameia on the Euphrates, Arsameia on the Nymphaios, Beroia, Chaonia, Doliche, Doura Europos, Epiphaneia on the Euphrates, Europos Carchemish, Gindaros, Herakleia, Hierapolis Bambyke, Jebel Khalid, Kyrrhos, Meleagrou Charax, Nikatoris, Oropos, Samosata, Seleukeia on the Euphrates/Zeugma, Serre, and Stratonikeia near Tauros. Ainos was the name of a number of places in Greece, including one in Thrace, Ozolian Locris, and Thessaly. The toponym Beroia recalls the town in Macedonia and suggests that the foundation in Syria was named for it and possibly settled by colonists from there. It was suggested that Gindaros in Syrian Cyrrhestice was named for Genderros/Genderra in Macedonia. Hierapolis Bambyke was located on the highway that led eastward to Edessa/Antioch on the Kallirhoe. Samosata was strategically located at the village of Samsat. Stratonikeia was described as a small town near the mountain.
