Where?[edit]

Whereabouts was this city? The article doesn't say anything about that. Even if the exact location isn't known, there must be something about the approximate area, country, continent? Fut.Perf. 22:44, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Strabo mentions Damastion without giving its position (VII, 7, 8; VIII, 6, 16). There are number of hypotheses about its location. The coins findings originate from south Serbia, east Macedonia and west Bulgaria (Popovic, P). The most recent location that was proposed was at Krsevica location, south-east of Vranje (southern Serbia) (Popovic, P., Kale-Krsevica excavations 2001-2004, Bulletin of the National Museum Vranje, 33: 25-49, 2005.). If you would know how, please enter this reference in the main text. Draganparis (talk) 10:54, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
