bibliography            

Krateia (a.k.a. Flaviopolis) was located about 50 km east of Bithynion (also called Claudiopolis).

To good fortune.  Apollonios Sainianos dedicated the altar to Zeus Bennios, whose nature is to hear, in return for benefactions from the association (bennos) to him and because of the piety and honor which he has towards the association.
