STRYMO´NII

Eth. STRYMO´NII (Eth. Στρυμόνιος), the name by which, according to tradition, the Bithynians in Asia originally were called, because they had immigrated into Asia from the country about the Strymon in Europe. (Hdt. 7.75; Steph. B. sub voce Στρυμών.) Pliny (5.40) further states that Bithynia was called by some Strymonis.
