The passage in question, according to TLG, occurs in both Hippolitus'
Chronicon 83.2) and in the Chronicon Paschale (48.8.
The Greek translation given below, however, is based on a number of
(1) that "the stream of Potamis" refers to the Black Sea
(2) that Mastousia is not a proper noun but a common noun
(3) that KATA(Hip)/KAQ(Pas) (/HLION should not be read as "eastward?"
but should be emended to KATA )/ILION (i.e. Ilium = Troy)
