The description of Olympus is as follows. Around it, to the north, live Bithynians, Mygdonians, and Doliones; the rest is occupied by Mysians and Epicteti. The tribes about Cyzicus1 from Æsepus2 as far as Rhyndacus3 and the lake Dascylitis,4 are called for the most part Doliones; those next to the Doliones, and extending as far as the territory of the Myrleani,5 are called Mygdones. Above the Dascylitis are two large lakes, the Apolloniatis,6 and the Miletopolitis.7 Near the Dascylitis is the city Dascylium, and on the Miletopolitis, Miletopolis. Near a third lake is Apollonia on the Rhyndacus, as it is called. Most of these places belong at present to the Cyziceni.
