Epacria

Epacria or Epakria (Ancient Greek: ?) was one of the twelve districts of ancient Attica,[1] and subsequently, as appears from an inscription, a deme near Plotheia and Halae Araphenides.[2] As the name of a district, it was probably synonymous with Diacria.[3] An ancient grammarian describes the district of Epacria as bordering upon that of the Tetrapolis of Marathon.[4]

It is located in northeastern Attica.[5][6]
