  Thynias (Mela ii. 2. § 5; Plin. iv. 11. s. 18; Thunias, Strabo vii. p. 319, xii. p. 541: Scymn. 727; Arrian. Per. P. Eux. p 24; Anon. Per. P. Eux. p. 15; Ptol. iii. 11. § 4; Steph. B. s. v.), a promontory on the Thracian coast of the Euxine, N. of Salmydessus, which was probably at one time in the territories of the Thyni, although Strabo (vii. p. 319) speaks of the district as belonging to the people of Apollonia. Pliny (l. c.) mentions a town of the same name, which in some maps is placed a little to the south of the promontory, on the site of the modern Inada or Iniada; but which, according to Dapper (de l'Arohip. p. 515), is still called Thinno.
