Search for inscriptions mentioning Orthos (Ορθη...) in the PHI Epigraphy database.

Modern Description: The site of Orthos—not to be confused with the Homeric Orthe, the probable ancestor of Phalanna—lay north-east of the village of Kedros (Helly (1992) 78) and so in the tetras of Thessaliotis. However, there is no published material on this site. A cult of Athena may be assumed on the basis of the coin types (see infra), and outside the walls is a sanctuary of Demeter
