SYLLIUM (Σύλλιον), a fortified town of Pamphylia, situated on a lofty height between Aspendus and Side, and between the rivers Eurymedon and Cestrus, at a distance of 40 stadia from the coast. (Strab. xiv. p.667; Arrian, Arr. Anab. 1.25; Scylax, p. 40; Ptol. 5.5.1; Hieroel. p. 679; Plb. 22.17; Steph. B. sub voce mentions it under the name Σύλειον, while in other passages it is called Σύλαιον, Σύλλον, and Σίλονον.) Sir C. Fellows (Asia Minor, p. 200) thinks that the remains of a Greek town which he found in a wood on the side of a rocky hill near Bolcascooe belong to the ancient Syllium; but from his description; they do not appear to exist on a lofty height.
