  Cestrine (Kestrine, Thuc. Paus.; Kestrinia, Steph. B. s. v. Kammania; Kestria, Steph. B. s. v. Troia), a district of Epeirus in the south of Chaonia, separated from Thesprotia by the river Thyamis. (Thuc. i. 46.) It is said to have received its name from Cestrinus, son of Helenus and Andromache, having been previously called Cammania. (Paus. i. 11. § 1, ii. 23. § 6; Steph. B. s. v. Kammania.) The principal town of this district is called Cestria by Pliny (iv. 1), but its more usual name appears to have been Ilium or Troja, in memory of the Trojan colony of Helenus. (Steph. B. s. v. Troia.) The remains of this town are still visible at the spot called Palea Venetia, near the town of Filiates. In the neighbourhood are those fertile pastures, which were celebrated in ancient times for the Cestrinic oxen. (Hesych. s. v. Kestrinikoi Boes; Schol. ad Aristoph. Pac. 924.) The inhabitants of the district were called Kestrenoi by the poet Rhianus (Steph. B. s. v. Chaunoi). (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iv. pp. 73, 175.)
