Triopium or Triopion and Triopia (Ancient Greek: Τριόπιον and Τριοπία) was a town on the coast of ancient Caria, near ancient Cnidus.[1] According to ancient writers Triopas was the founder of the city, and took its name after him.[2][3][4]

At Triopium there was a temple of Apollo. The temple was built with common expenses from the Greek cities of the region.[5]

Its site is located near Kumyer, Asiatic Turkey.[1][6]
