A mountain of Thrace.[1]
Greek Original:
*kisqh/nh: o)/ros th=s *qra/|khs.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., commenting on this toponym in Isocrates 4.153 (and going on to quote Cratinus fr. 309 Kock = 343 K.-A.; see further, next note).
[1] Though the quotation from Cratinus seems to confirm that Kisthene was a mountain, it is also attested as the name of two coastal towns in Asia Minor. For the one that Isoc. probably meant, in Aiolis, see Barrington Atlas map 56 grid D3.
