Adler's apparatus registers some attempts to make better sense of this entry. The toponym, first, should probably be Tymphai, Tymphaia (which Stephanus of Byzantium has as a polis- and/or mountain-name) or Tymphe. And for the second part of the entry cf. Callimachus, Hymns 3.178 ('Stymphaides'), with scholion.
