"Grynēa (Γρύνεια). One of the twelve cities of Aeolis, situated on the coast of Lydia, near the northern confines, and northwest of Cymé. It was celebrated for the worship of Apollo, who thence derived the surname of Gryneus (Eclog. vi. 72; Aen. iv. 345). The temple of the god was remarkable for its size, and for the beauty of its white marble." - Harry Thurston Peck. Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities. New York. Harper and Brothers. 1898.
