Historical Notes:Troas, or the Troad (now Biga Peninsula in modern day Turkey), was a region in ancient northwestern Anatolia bound by the Dardanelles and the Aegean Sea, and cut off from the rest of Anatolia by Mount Ida. The site of ancient Birytis, a city in Troas, remains unlocated. It may have stood south of Troy, or near Kebren.
