Historical Notes:

Plakia was a town on the coast of the Propontis (Sea of Marmara, in present day Turkey), said by Herodotus to have been settled by Pelasgians, the ancient predecessors of the Greeks.  According to Pliny the Elder, Plakia, along with nearby Skylake, sat at the foot of the Mysian Mount Olympus.
