Near Agora it was protected by a wall running across its full breadth. The isthmus traversed by the wall was only 36 stadia in breadth (about 6.5 km), but the length of the peninsula from this wall to its southern extremity, Cape Mastusia, was 420 stadia (about 77.5 km).Antiquity - MedievalIn ancient times, the Gallipoli Peninsula was known as the Thracian Chersonesus to the Greeks and later the Romans.
