TECMON (Τέκμων: Eth. Τεκμώνιος), a city of Molossis in Epeirus, incorrectly called by Stephanus B. a city of Thesprotia, taken by L. Anicius, the Roman commander, in B.C. 167. Leake supposes that Guriánista, near Kúrendo, about 20 miles to the W. of Joánnina, may have been the site of Tecmon or Horreum, which Livy mentions in connection with Tecmon. (Liv. 45.26; Steph. B. sub voce Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iv. p. 83.)
