TYMBRES

TYMBRES a tributary of the Sangarius, in the north of Phrygia (Liv. 38.18), is in all probability the same river as the one called by Pliny (6.1) Tembrogius, which joined the Sangarius, as Livy says, on the borders of Phrygia and Galatia, and, flowing in the plain of Dorylaeum, separated Phrygia Epictetus from Phrygia Salutaris. It seems also to be the same river as the Thyaris and Bathys mentioned in Byzantine writers. (Cinnamus, 5.1. p. 1ll; Richter, Wallfahrten, p. 522, foll.)
