LYRBE (Λύρβη: Eth. Λυρβείτης), a town of Pisidia, mentioned by the poet Dionysius. There are coins of this place belonging to the reign of Alexander Severus, and it occurs among the episcopal towns of Pamphylia in the Not. Eccles. It is clearly the same as the LYROPE (Λυρόπη) of Ptolemy, though he places the latter in Cilicia Tracheia. (Dionys. Per. 858; Hierocl. p. 682; Ptol. 5.5.9; Cramer, Asia Minor, vol. ii. p. 313.)
