(Τίσαιον; Tísaion). Mountain in the south of Magnesia  (modern Bardzochia, 644 m elevation); today, the whole of the east-west part of the peninsula is called T. The Argonauts passed by this mountain (Apoll. Rhod. 1,568 ff.). There was a temple to Diana Tisaea there (Val. Fl. 2,7) and a station for signalling by fire to Demetrias  (Pol. 10,42,7; Liv. 28,5,17).
