Psyllium or Psyllion (Ancient Greek: Ψύλλιον), or Psylleium or Psylleion (Ψύλλειον), or Psillium or Psillion, or Psylla (Ψύλλα), was a fortified emporium on the coast of ancient Bithynia located on the Pontus Euxinus between Crenides and Tium. The Tabula Peutingeriana erroneously calls it Scylleum.
