CYIZA (Κΰιζα, Ptol. 6.8.8; Marcian. p. 23; Arrian, Hist. Indic. 100.27), a small port on the coast of Carmania, in the country of the Icthyophagi, to which the fleet of Nearchus came, but at which they were not able to land owing to the heavy sea, which was running on the shore. It does not appear that the place can be identified with any existing town, unless the name has been preserved in Khudar, which is spoken of by Otter (Travels, vol. ii. p. 409; comp. Vincent, Voy. of Nearchus. vol. i. p. 257).
