MO´PSIUM (Μόψιον: Eth. Μοψιος, Steph. B. sub voce Μοψειεύς, a dialectic form of μοψιεύς), a town of Pelasgiotis in Thessaly, situated upon a hill of the same name, which, according to Livy, was situated midway between Larissa and Tempe. Its ruins are still conspicuous in the situation mentioned by Livy, near the northern end of the lake Karatjaír or Nessonis. (Steph. B. sub voce Strab. ix. pp. 441, 443; Liv. 42.61, 67; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 377.)
