Menace (Greek settlement)

Menace or Maenace (Greek Μαινάκη Mainákē) is an ancient Greek settlement lying to the southeast of Spain according to Strabo (3,4,2). Maria Eugenia Aubet locates it at the site of modern Málaga.[1] According to the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World, its probable location is the hill of Cerro del Peñón, near the mouth of river Vélez, at the south of Vélez Malaga.[2]
