Kalchedon, Bithynia, c. Late 4th - 3rd Century B.C.
|Bithynia|, |Kalchedon,| |Bithynia,| |c.| |Late| |4th| |-| |3rd| |Century| |B.C.|, The position of Chalcedon, on the eastern shore of the Bosporus, was not as favorable as that of Byzantion on the opposite side. The Persian Megabazus (Herod. iv. 144) said the founders of Chalcedon must have been blind, for Chalcedon was settled seventeen years before Byzantium; and the settlers, we must suppose, had the choice of the two places.
