In Mysia (modern Turkey), present-day Gönen Çayı. The Aesepus rises in Mount Cotylus, one of the summits of Ida (Homer, Iliad 12. 21) and flows through the territory of Zeleia (Homer, Iliad 2. 825) to the Propontis between the mouth of the Granicus and Cyzicus. According to Strabo (12.4.6), the Aesepus was the eastern boundary of Mysia. Hesiod, Theogony 342, mentions its divine personification (web address 1).
