CORSYMUS

CORSYMUS or CORSYNUS. It appears, from the coins of Aphrodisias, in Caria, that there was a river Corsymus, or Corsynus, there. In the article APHRODISIAS the river is named Mosynus. The name in the editions of Harduin and Sillig (Plin. Nat. 5.29) is Orsinus. Harduin says that the editions of Pliny have Mossinus. It seems likely that Corsynus or Corsymus is the true name, and that the other forms are corruptions.
