PINDUS (Πίνδος), one of the towns of the tetrapolis of Doris, situated upon a river of the sane [p. 2.631]name, which flows into the Cephissus near Lilaea. [DORIS] It was also called Ἀκύφας), as we learn from Strabo and from Theopompus (ap. Steph. B. sub voce Ἀκύφας). In one passage Strabo says that Pindus lay above Erineus, and in another he places it in the district of Oetaea; it is, therefore, probable that the town stood in the upper part of the valley, near the sources of the river in the mountain. (Strab. ix. pp. 427, 434; Scymn. Ch. 591; Schol, ad Pind. Pyth. 1.121; Mel. 2.3 ; Plin. Nat. 4.7. s. 13; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 92.)
