ERE´ZII

Eth. ERE´ZII are placed by Pliny (5.30) in Mysia, and thus mentioned: “Apolloniatae a Rhyndaco amne, Erezii, Miletopolitae;” from which we conclude that the place was about Apollonia and Miletopolis. It is remarked (Plin. H. N. ed. Hard. Notae, &c. ad lib. v. no. lxxxiv.) that all the MSS. of Pliny have Eresii. The correction seems probable enough, for the reasons there given. The Table has a name Argesis on the road from Pergamum to Cyzicus, and 35 from Pergamum. Cramer (Asia Minor, vol. i. p. 58) considers this the same place as the Argiza of Hierocles (Synecd. p. 663), which seems probable. He would also identify it with Pliny's Erezii, which may be true, but is not quite so certain.
