Bistoniis. The Bistones were a Thracian people living on the western border of Thrace about Abdera, while the story of Polydorus is localised either in the Thracian Chersonese ( Eur. Hec.8), or, as by Virgil, Aen.III. 18, near the mouth of the Hebrus at Aenus or Aeneadae. But Ovid applies the name to the people of Thrace generally, and even to the tribes about Tomi beyond its borders (Ex Pont. I. iii. 59, ib. IV. v. 35).
