A city-state on Discworld based loosely on Greece. Philosphers congregate there, to bathe, drink, bicker and invent large weapons. Home to the second-biggest library on the Disc, as well as the deadly and elaborate palace maze, which no person has gone more than nineteen paces into unescorted (his head rolled another seven, but that hardly counts). It's ruler is an elected autocrat called the Tyrant. Featured prominently in the book Small Gods by Terry Pratchett.
