Astyra (Ancient Greek: Ἀστυρα) was a town of ancient Troad, mentioned by Strabo. Strabo writes that it was above Abydus and once an independent city, but in Strabo's time it was a ruined place, and belonged to the inhabitants of Abydus. There were once gold mines there, but they were nearly exhausted in Strabo's time.
