TEUTHRANIA

TEUTHRANIA (Τευθρανία), the name of the western part of Mysia about the river Caicus, which was believed to be derived from an ancient Mysian king Tenthras. This king is said to have adopted, as his son and successor, Telephus, a son of Heracles; and Eurypylus, the son of Telephus, appears in the Odyssey as the ruler of the Ceteii. (Strab. iii. p.615; Hom. Od. 10.520; comp. MYSIA

In the district Teuthlania a town of the same name is mentioned as situated between Elaea, Pitane, and Atarneus (Strab. l.c.; Steph. B. sub voce Xelloph. Hist. Gr. 2.1.6), but no other particulars are known about it.
