or Trallis (αἱ Τραλλεῖς, Τράλλις). A flourishing commercial city of Lydia, in Asia Minor. It stood on a plateau at the southern foot of Mount Messogis (with a citadel on a higher point), on the banks of the little river Eudon, a northern tributary of the Maeander, from which the city was distant eighty stadia (eight geographical miles). It was said to have been founded by Argives and Thracian settlers on the site of an older town called Anthea ( Strab. p. 648; Diod.xvii. 65). Under the Seleucidae it bore the names of Seleucia and Antiochia.
