CYPHUS (Κύφος: Eth. Κυφαῖος), a town of Perrhaebia in Thessaly, which supplied 22 ships for the Trojan war. It is placed by Strabo at the foot of Mt. Olympus. (Hom. Il. 2.748; Strab. ix. p.441; Lycophr. 897.) According to Stephanus (s. v.) there were two cities of the name of Cyphus, one mentioned by Homer, and the other by Lycophron; but in this he appears to have been mistaken. (Hemsterh. ad Arist. Plut. p. 116.)
