), a town in the south of Cyzicus, and on the south-west of lake Aphnitis, which is mentioned only by very late authors.
It belonged to the territory of Cyzicus, was well fortified, and possessed a celebrated temple of Asclepius. (Steph. B. sub voce Ποιμάνινον;
Nicet. Chon. Chron.
p. 296; Concil. Constant. III. p. 501 ; Concil. Nicaen. II. p. 572; Hierocl. p. 662, where it is called Poemanentus.) Its inhabitants are called Poemaneni (Ποιμανηνοί, Plin. Nat. 5.32
). Hamilton (Researches,
ii. p. 108, &c.) identifies it with the modern Maniyas,
near the lake bearing the same name.
