[1] Tyana (modern Kemerhisar, Niğde Province, Turkey) was an important crossroads city, on the main road between Constantinople and the Near East (Foss, 2130), in Cappadocia, a region in south-central Asia Minor, Barrington Atlas map 61 grid F1.
[2] Polybius fr. 176 Büttner-Wobst; context (and individual) indeterminable; cf. Walbank, 753-4. The verb katarge/w seems to be more common in late prose and in papyri (LSJ s.v.). Büttner-Wobst notes (537) that Valesius (Henri de Valois 1603-1676) attributed this fragment to Polybius. Although Büttner-Wobst accepts the fragment as Polybian, he observes (ibid.) that Dindorf rejected it.
