TALAURA (Τάλαυρα), a mountain fortress in Pontus to which Mithridates withdrew with his most precious treasures, which were afterwards found there by Lucullus. (D. C. 35.14; Appian, App. Mith. 115.) As the place is not mentioned by other writers, some suppose it to have been the same as Gaziura, the modern Tourkhal which is perched upon a lofty isolated rock. (Hamilton, Researches, vol. i. p. 360.)
