Identified with the location:

KAFKONIS (Ancient city) DYMI

Homeric Dyme

When Antimachus calls Dyme "Cauconian," some interpret "Cauconian" as an epithet derived from the Cauconians, since the Cauconians extended as far as Dyme, as I have already said above, but others as derived from a River Caucon.


STRATOS (Ancient city) ACHAIA

Homeric Dyme

Next comes Dyme, a city without a harbor, the farthest of all towards the west, a fact from which it takes its name. But in earlier times it was called Stratos.


Perseus Encyclopedia

DYMI (Ancient city) PATRA

Dyme

A town in Achaea, anciently called Palea, annexed by Augustus to Patrae, Aratus defeated by Cleomenes at.


PALIA (Ancient city) DYMI

Dyme

A town in Achaea, anciently called Palea.


Strabo

DYMI (Ancient city) PATRA

Dyme

   And he ( Hecataeus of Miletus) says, further, that Dyme is an Epeian and an Achaean city. However, the early historians say many things that are not true, because they were accustomed to falsehoods on account of the use of myths in their writings; and on this account, too, they do not agree with one another concerning the same things. Yet it is not incredible that the Epeians, even if they were once at variance with the Eleians and belonged to a different race, later became united with the Eleians as the result of prevailing over them, and with them formed one common state; and that they prevailed even as far as Dyme. For although the poet has not named Dyme, it is not unreasonable to suppose that in his time Dyme belonged to the Epeians, and later to the Ionians, or, if not to them, at all events to the Achaeans who took possession of their country.

TEFTHEA (Ancient city) PATRA

Teuthea

The River Caucon empties into another river which is called Teutheas, in the masculine gender; Teutheas has the same name as one of the little towns which were incorporated into Dyme, except that the name of this town, "Teuthea," is in the feminine gender, and is spelled without the s and with the last syllable long.
