Libanius extremos Basilici, Α᾿ινεῖται δὲ τὸ Βιθυνῶν ἔθνος τοῖς ὁτιοῦν ἐπιθυμοῦσι λαβεῖν. Vide Steph. Manilio, l. 4. Bithynia dives vocatur. Hinc Horatius l. 1. Ep. 6. v. 33.

Nic. Loydius. Nomen a Bithyne, fil. Iovis ex Thrace Tianis; erant namque Bithyni populi olim Thraciae, qui inde in Asiam com migrârunt. Vide Strabonem l. 7. et 10. Bithyniae Agrorum Regiorum, qui nempe populo Romano Testamentô relicti sunt, mentio est in Agrariis Tullanis. Eorum mensura exigebatur ad pedem Regium Philetaetium; quemadmodum ad Prolemaicum pedem agri Regii mensurabantur, quos in Cytenensi Ptolemaeus Rex eidem Populo legaverat. Postquam Itaque in Romanorum potestatem Bithynia cessit, Praetoria facta provincia est, ab Asiae speciali appellatione separata, cui Paphlagonia addita est, uti docet Salmas. ad Solin. p. 807. Vide quoque eum p. 185. et 684.
