Ragavis suggests that Pharygae was probably the ancient city of Naryx. Tarphe was near the Mt. Cnede.
Eth. Tarphaios. A town of the Locri Epicnemidii, mentioned by Homer (Il. ii. 533). It was situated upon a height in a fertile and woody country, and was said to have derived its name from the thickets in which it stood. In the time of Strabo it had changed its name into that of Pharygae (Pharugai), and was said to have received a colony from Argos. It contained a temple of Hera Pharygaea. It is probably the modern Pundonitza.
