TAPU´RI MONTES a chain of mountains, in Scythia, to the N. of the Jaxartes, apparently a portion of the Altai range, towards its western extremity (Ptol 6.14.7). It may, however, be doubted whether this view of Ptolemy is really correct. It would seem more likely that they are connected with the Tapuri, a tribe who nearly adjoined the Hyrcani [TAPURI]; and this a notice in Polybius would appear clearly to imply (5.44).
