TIRISTASIS

TIRISTASIS (Plin. Nat. 4.11. s. 18; Τειρίστασις, Scyl. p. 28; Τιρίστασις, Epist. Phil ad Ath. ap. Dem. p. 159, B.), a town of the Thracian Chersonesus, on the coast of the Propontis. It was included in the dominions of Philip, who in the letter above referred to complains that the Athenian general Diopeithes had taken it and sold its inhabitants for slaves (B.C. 340) [DIOPEITHES, Dict. Biog.] According to Choiseul, its site is still occupied by a village bearing the same name.
