Serrion Teichos (Ancient Greek: Σέρριον τείχος) or Serreion Teichos (Σέρρειον τεῖχος) was a Greek[1] city in ancient Thrace, located in the region of the Propontis. It was a member of the Delian League and appears in tribute lists of Athens between 428/7 and 418/7 BCE.[1] It later bore the name of Ganus or Ganos (Γάνος or Γᾶνος).[2] It is under this name that the town is mentioned by geographers and historians, as a noted mountain fortress of Thrace.[3]

Its site is near the modern Ganos, Turkey.[2][4]
