There is a bend of the Carian coast opposite to Rhodes, immediately after Eleus1 and Loryma, towards the north, and then the ship's course is in a straight line to the Propontis,2 and forms as it were a meridian line of about 500 stadia in length, or somewhat less. Along this line are situated the remainder of Caria, Ionians, Æolians, Troy, and the parts about Cyzicus and Byzantium. Next to Loryma is tile Cynossema, or dogs' monument,3 and the island Syme.4
