There still exists in that district a small river called Timbrek,
which, however, does not flow into the Scamander, but into a bay of the sea; if this be the ancient Thymbrius, the plain of Thymbra must have been at a considerable distance from> Ilium. For this reason, Col. Leake is inclined to identify the Thymbrius rather with the Kamara Su,
which still is a tributary of the Scamander or Hendere Su
