Aegospotami

Aegospotami (i.e. Goat Streams) is a small river issuing into the Hellespont, northeast of Sestos[?]. It was the scene of the decisive battle in 405 BC by which Lysander destroyed the Athenian fleet in the Peloponnesian War.

The township of that name, whose existence is attested by coins of the 5th and 4th centuries, must have been quite insignificant.
