Τριταία: Eth. Τριταιεύς; in Hdt. 1.145, Τριταιέες is the name of the people), a town in Achaia, and the most inland of the 12 Achaean cities, was distant 120 stadia from Pharae. It was one of the four cities, which took the lead in reviving the Achaean League in B.C. 280. In the Social War (B.C. 220, seq.) it suffered from the attacks of the Aetolians and Eleians. Its territory was annexed to Patrae by Augustus, when he made the latter city a colony after the battle of Actium. Its site is probably represented by the remains at Kastritza, on the Selinus, near the frontiers of Arcadia. (Hdt. 1.145; Pol. 2.41, 4.6, 59, 60; Strab. viii. p.386; Paus. 7.22.6. seq.; Steph. B. sub voce Leake, Morea, vol. ii. p. 117.)


(Tritea, Plin. Nat. 4.3. s. 4: Eth. Τριτέες, Hdt. 8.33), one of the towns of Phocis, burnt by Xerxes, of which the position is uncertain. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 89.)


Τρίτεια, Steph. B. sub voce s. v.: Eth. Τριταιέες, Thuc. 3.101), a town of the Locri Ozolae, described by Stephanus B. as lying between Phocis and the Locri Ozolae. Hence it is placed by Leake not far from Delphi and Amphissa, on the edge, perhaps, of the plain of Sálona. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. ii. p. 621.)
