Birytis — A settlement in Troas
Known only from numismatic evidence, this enigmatic city seems to have existed between 350-250 BC, somewhere close to Troy. But the precise location, as well as any literary sources on Birytis, is lacking.

Coins from Birytis all have the same motif - the obverse features a man, with or without beard, wearing a pileus hat with two stars above, and the reverse a club in a wreath, and the legend BI PY for Birytis.
