PITYO´DES (Πιτυώδης), a small island in the Propontis off the coast of Bithynía, near Cape Hyris, and 110 stadia to the north of Cape Acritas. (Plin. Nat. 5.44; Steph. B. sub voce Πιτύουσσαι, who speaks of several islands of this name, which is the same as Πιτυώδεις.) The island is probably the one now called Bojuk Ada, where Pococke (vol. iii. p. 147) found remains of an ancient town.
