Place[edit]

I think that the most reliable sources indicates that the battle took place in a valley in the north coast of the Kastoria lake. The name of Pelagonia indicates prob. that it was significant for the control of the region of Pelagonia (aka. Upper Macedonia, modern west Macedonia (region)). Shall we change it, cause other sources that place the battle in the region of Pelagonia seems not accurate. It's propably an example of ancient and modern, historians, "urban legend". Prilep is not historically belonging to Pelagonia[] in the Kingdom of Macedon, but in Deuriopus, part of Paionia, in a place where was the city called Styberra.
