TROICUS MONS (Τρωικὸν ὄρος, Strab. xvii. p.809; Steph. B. sub voce Τρωικοῦ λιθου ὄρος, Ptol. 4.5.27), was a long range of hills east of the Nile, which threw out several abrupt spurs into the Heptanomis of Aegypt. It stood in the parallel of Heracleopolis,i. e. in Lat. 31A1N. From this calcareous range was quarried, according to Strabo, the stone used in the construction of the Pyramids.
