A city of Boiotia.
Greek Original:
*)ari/sbh: po/lis th=s *boiwti/as.
Cities of this name are attested in the Troad and on the island of Lesbos -- see in brief OCD(4) s.v. (p.152) -- but not in Boiotia. The lexicographer, or his source, is confusing one of these with Boiotian Thisbe [Myth, Place] (theta 388).
Keywords: definition; geography
