Cobrys or Kobrys (Ancient Greek: Κῶβρυς)[1] was a coastal Greek town in ancient Thrace, on the Thracian Chersonesus.[2] It is mentioned in the Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax[3]

It was an Emporium of the Cardia.[3]

There have been unconvincing attempts to identify Cobrys with Crobyle.[2] Cobrys' site is located 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Kavak Suyu, in European Turkey.[4][5]
