PHYLLIS was a river-god of Bithynia in Anatolia (modern Turkey).
The Phyllis River was a stream of the Thynian peninsular on the Black Sea coast half way between the Bosporos Straits and the Sangarios River. The most important adjacent rivers were the Askanios (Ascanius) to the south and Saggarios (Sangarius) to the east.

Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 2. 653 ff (trans. Rieu) (Greek epic C3rd B.C.) :
"Dipaskos (Dipascus) was the son of a Nymphe Leimonias (Meadow-Nymph) and the River Phyllis [of Bithynia]. He was an unassuming person who was quite content to live with his mother by his father's stream and graze his flocks by the sea."
