One of several "Trikomiai" attested in the ancient Greek and Roman world. This presumed settlement cannot be located today, but probably lay in what is today the country of Turkey, somewhere between Dorylaion (Eskişehir) and Pessinous (Ballıhisar).

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 62 Trikomia 3

Ptolemy places this Trikomia in Φρυγία Μεγἀλης (Greater Phrygia), listing it between Μιδάϊον (Midaion) and Ἄγκυρα Φρυγίας (Phrygian Ankyra, i.e. modern Ankara). The Peutinger Map places it on a route network between "Mideo" and "Pesinvnte" (i.e., Midaion and Pessinous). "Dorileo" is one route segment leftward of "Mideo" on the Peutinger Map; therefore, the BAtlas Directory localizes Trikomia 3 "between Dorylaion and Pessinous".

NB: A Wikipedia entry entitled "Tricomia (Phrygia)" conflates this Trikomia with another (Pleiades 609560) that may have been located at modern İlkburun in Turkey. Such a view is implicitly rejected by RE and, following it, BAtlas and Pleiades.
