[Moeller] I have no ideea what you was looking for. Plinius
tells there about the king of colchis "Aethis" and describe
the richness of his palast. Are you looking for the
geografical coordinate of them? If so, you have to look at
Plinius ( you have it) in VI 11.1 There you will find the
colchi situed between Ripheis and Ceraunii Montains. The same
location is to find by Mela (I. 19)
