Naəgbum
• 

Naəgbum is a city on the Lukpanic coast of western Peilaš, located to the north of Kpitamoa. It was the first Lukpanic city-state to be conquered by the Coastal Westerners when they moved into Lukpanic territory; the fall of the city to the Nugbunu Tlégè dates to -985 YP. In the following centuries, Naəgbum (now known as Nugbùn) became the center of the Coastal Western Ìletlégbàku culture, before it was overtaken in wealth and influence by the growing trade post of Pigbaye.
