Anab. 1,26,5). A pre-Greek settlement is suggested by the place name Selyviys on coins…

Author(s): Martini, Wolfram (Gießen)
(Παμφυλία/ Pamphylía). [German version] I. Geography The name is usually derived from one of the three traditional Doric tribes (Dymanes, Hylleis, Pamphyloi) or from the Greek adjective pám-phylos, 'from all tribes'.
