HIPPUS a town in Caria, mentioned only by Pomponius Mela (1.17), who places it near the mouth of the Maeander, whence some have inferred that the name is a mere mistake for Myus; it must, however, be observed that Pliny (5.29) speaks of a people in Caria called Hippini or Halydenses, though he places them in a different part of the country.
