TELMISSUS

TELMISSUS
urbs Pisidiae, de qua sic vir magnus, de Phoen. Colon. l. 1. c. 6. Solymi, inquit, Strabone auctore, l. 13. Termissenses appellantur a Termesso promontor. cui imminet Solymus: Τῆςγοῦν Τερμήςςεως ἄκρας, inquit, ὁ ὑπερκείμενος λόφος καλεῖται Εόλυμος, καὶ αὐτοὶ δὲ οἱ Τερμιςςεῖς Σόλυμοι καλοῦνται. Ubi lege Telmissum, et Telmissenses. Nam pro Τελμήςςες libri scripti habent Τελμήςςες, ut observatum est a Casaubono. Sic in his verbis l. 14. Υ῾πέρκειται δ᾿ αὐτῆς τὰ Σόλυμαὄρος, καὶ τέρμιςςος Πισιδικὴ πόλις ἐπικειμένη τοῖς ςενοῖς. Ubi male pro Telmisso legi Termissum patet ex Eustath. qui hunc ipsum locum sic citat, ubi de Phaselide, habet enim Τελμιςςὸν. Sed et Arrianus, l. 1. ἀναβάσ. constanter scribit Τελμιςςὸν et Τελμιςςέας. Et Hesychio Τελμισεῖς sunt ἔθνος περὶ Λυκίαν; et apud Cicer. de Divin. l. 1. Telmessus in Caria est. Suidas etiam habet Τελμισεῖς, ex Polemone ac Dionysio Chalcidensi, qui scripsit urbium origines. Et vero Solymorum linguâ Telmissus erat Tahalmis. Nempe halmis Ebraeis rupem sonat, et ad formam nominis pertinet Gap desc: Hebrew praepositum: Quod a saxo deductum seu monte praerupto cui incumbebat. Arrianus: χωρίον δὲ οἰκοῦσιν ὑπερύψηλον καὶ πάντῃ ἀπιτομον. Nic. Lloydius.
