Site in Caria, on
the Loryma peninsula SW of Marmaris. According to
) it stood on top of a mountain of the same
name, which Fenaket does not; but the survival of the
name seems conclusive for the site. The place seems also
to be mentioned by Stephanos Byzantios s.v. Phoinike. It belonged with the rest of the peninsula to the
incorporated Rhodian Peraea, and seems to have been
the center of the deme of the Tloioi. Little survives apart
from a fortified acropolis and numerous inscriptions.
