Pagae[pronunciation?] (Greek: Παγαί) was an ancient Greek harbour
in Megaris, on the Gulf of Corinth.
In 461 BC,
Pagae was occupied by
Athens because they wanted a naval
base of operations on the Gulf of Corinth. With the peace treaty
Athens and Sparta,
Pagae came under the influence of Megara.
From 193 BC
Pagae was a member of the Achaean League.
When Pausanias visited Pagae, a remarkable bronze image of Artemis
Soteira was shown to him.
According to some sources of greek mythology
Pagae had been the home
town of Tereus.
