Enez is a town and a locale of Edirne Province, in Thrace, Turkey. The pre-Turkish name of the town was Ainos, Latinized as Aenus. The leader is Ahmet Cayir DSP. The populace is 3,826 starting at 2010. The legendary and eponymous originator of the antiquated Greek city of Ainos/Aenus was said to be Aeneus, a child of the god Apollo and father of Cyzicus. Another legendary ruler, named Poltys, child of Poseidon, engaged Heracles when he came to Aenus. On that event, Heracles slew Poltys' ill bred sibling Sarpedon on the shoreline of Aenus. As indicated by Strabo, Sarpedon is the name of the coastline close Aenus, so both Poltys and Sarpedon would seem, by all accounts, to be eponyms.
Apparently in view of the closeness of the names, Virgil has Aeneas discovered the city after the obliteration of Troy. A surer indication of its artifact is in the Iliad, where Homer notices that Peirous, who drove Troy's Thracian partners, originated from Aenus. Herodotus 7.58 and Thucydides say Aenus was an Aeolian province. Scymnus Chius 696 says the pilgrims originated from Mytilene on Lesbos Island, while Stephanus Byzantius says they came from Cumae. According to Strabo p. 319, a more antiquated name of the place was Poltyobria and Stephanus says it was likewise called Apsinthus.
