As for "the mountain of Tereia,"1 some say that it is the range of mountains in Peirossus which are occupied by the Cyziceni and are adjacent to Zeleia, where a royal hunting ground was arranged by the Lydians, and later by the Persians;2 but others point out a hill forty stadia from Lampsacus, on which there is a temple sacred to the mother of the gods, entitled "Tereia's" temple.

1 The mountain mentioned in the Hom. Il. 2.829

2 Xen. Hell. 4.1.15 speaks of royal hunting grounds, "some in enclosed parks, others in open regions."
