Headword: *terme/ria kaka/
Adler number: tau,348
Translated headword: Termerian evils
Vetting Status: high
A place in Karia is called Termerion, which the tyrants used to use as a prison.[1] This spot, a deserted one, lies between Melos and Halicarnassus.[2] And with elusive pirates operating from this, this was said.
So great evils [are called] 'Termerian evils'.[3]

[1] So the transmitted text, but for 'tyrannoi' one could perhaps read (with K.O. Mueller) 'Tyrr(h)enoi', i.e. Etruscans; cf. phi 184.
[2] 'Melos', an island in the S Aegean, cannot be right, and 'Mylos' (transmitted at Photius tau191 Theodoridis) is no better. What we need, as Hemsterhuys realized, is Myndos. Cape Termerion is the present-day Koca Burun; Barrington Atlas map 61 grid E4.
