It is a city in Epeiros[1]; and there is another in Thrace[2].
Greek Original:
*dru=s: e)/sti me\n po/lis e)n *)hpei/rw|: e)/sti de\ kai\ e(te/ra e)n *qra/|kh|.
From Harpokration s.v., who cites Demosthenes (23.132) and Theopompus (FGrH 115 F161).
(NF)[1] The Epeirote city is unlocated.
[2] The Thracian city is most likely to refer to Drys/ Rouphinianai, on the Bithynian side of the Bosporus (See Barrington Atlas map 53 grid B3), Bithynia often being deemed of Thracian origin. However, there is another contender in Thrake proper, Drousipara/Drusipara (in Thrakian something like 'Drys-village'). See Barrington Atlas map 52 grid B2.
There was also a Drys near Priene, and Stephanus of Byzantium cites a city of Oinotria (SE Italy) and a village in Kilikia by an unknown river Aros. The former is probably Hydruntum (from Hydrous>Drous), the latter in Lykia (as in one manuscript) where there is a river Axos.
