Tyberissus or Tyberissos, also Tyberisus or Tyberisos, was an inland town of ancient Lycia, near the ancient settlement of Teimiussa that functioned as its port.[1] The name is not attested in history, but is derived from epigraphic and other evidence.[1] This combination of harbor and inland location is the focus of archaeological exploration.[2] Among the finds are tombs with Lycian inscriptions.[3] Coins inscribed "ΤΥ" of typical Lycian type were probably minted here.[3]

Its site is located near the modern town of Tirmısın, Asiatic Turkey.[1][4]
