ATHYMBRUS

ΑΘΥΜΒΡΟΣ

Athymbrus, Athymbradus, and Hydrelus, three brothers, who came from Lacedaemon, and founded cities in Lydia, which were called by their names. These cities were afterwards deserted by their inhabitants, who founded together the town of Nysa, whence the latter regarded Athymbrus as its founder. (Strab. xiv. p. 650; Steph. Byz. s.v. Athumbra.)
