Skepsis — A settlement in Troas also known as Scepsis
Skepsis was an ancient settlement in Troas. It was notable for being the location where the famous library of Aristotle was kept before being moved to Pergamum and Alexandria.

Several times in its history, the citizens of Skepsis were forced to move elsewhere. When citizens of surrounding cities were forced to migrate to Troy, citizens of Skepsis were also forced to relocate. The city was again evacuated while the residents of surrounding cities were made to move to Alexandria Troas.
