Néandria, located in the hinterland of Mount Chigri was located near Colonus. Alexandria Troas was founded in 310 BC by Antigonus with a contribution of people from Cebren, Colone, Hamaxitus, Neandreia and Scepsis. The city was renamed Alexandreia in 300 BC after the battle of Ipsos Lysimachus in memory of the great conqueror..
