Cobrys or Kobrys (Ancient Greek: Κώβρυς) was a coastal Greek town in ancient Thrace, on the Thracian Chersonesus.[1] It is mentioned in the Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax.[2]

There have been unconvincing attempts to identify Cobrys with Crobyle.[1] Cobrys' site is located 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Kavak Suyu, in European Turkey.[3][4]
