ARGY´RIA (Ἀργυρία), mentioned in the Periplus of Arrian (p. 17) as 20 stadia east of Tripolis (Tireboli), in Pontus. Hamilton (Researches, &c., vol. i. p. 259) found the old silver mines, from which the place took its name, 2 1/2 miles from Tireboli.

There was another place Argyria, in the Troas, near Aenea (Erie or Einieh), according to Groskurd's Note (Translation of Strabo, vol. ii. p. 580) so called also from the silver mines near there.
