This should be Sothoros. The only time it is mentioned, on page 257 of AFfC, it is labelled so. Where did the <y> come from? Lajaki 14:43, 8 September 2010 (CDT)

Yup you're right. Although I did not make the page myself I suspect that the scanned text of AFFC was used as a source. With character recognition you can capture the text and load it into word or excel. But character recognition is not perfect. Scafloc 16:38, 8 September 2010 (CDT)
Sothoryos actually turns out to have been used twice: in private correspondance with Martin, and in the map of AFfC. So, it's actually an error. I hold the text to be more canonical than correspondance or maps, however, so I believe that Sothoros should be upheld. Lajaki 15:39, 9 September 2010 (CDT)
Three textual references to Sothoryos in A Dance with Dragons:
Chapter 30: These ships are made of rope and pitch and canvas, of Qohorik pine and teak from Sothoryos, old oak from Great Norvos, yew and ash and spruce.
Chapter 56: Like as not, the girl would prove to be some pock-faced slattern with teats slapping against her knees, her "dragons" no more than tattooed lizards from the swamps of Sothoryos.
Chapter 57: The lord of suet was already dying from whatever hideous disease he had brought back from Sothoryos, it seemed to Tyrion.

And also three to Sothoros:
:::::"Ten years ago he went to Sothoros, and he has been rotting from the inside out ever since. Make him forget that he is dying, even for a little while, and he can be most generous. Deny him nothing." - A Dance with Dragons, Chapter 47, Tyrion.
"Pale Qartheen, black Summer Islanders, copper-skinned Dothraki, Tyroshi with blue beards, Lamb Men, Jogos Nhai, sullen Braavosi, brindle-skinned half-men from the jungles of Sothoros—from the ends of the world they came to die in Daznak’s Pit." - A Dance with Dragons, Chapter 52
"These ships are made of rope and pitch and canvas, of Qohorik pine and teak from Sothoryos, old oak from Great Norvos, yew and ash and spruce." - A Dance with Dragons, Chapter 30
:::::This last one is one you mentioned with spelling of "Sothoryos" but in the published version of HarperCollins (London 2011) it is definitely "Sothoros". Which publication did you check?Scafloc 14:47, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
My version is "George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones 5-Book Boxed Set (Song of Ice and Fire Series)", the eBook version (Random House LLC - September 10, 2012). Which means I cheated by searching for "Sothoryos". Because of the hyphen, those two did not show up in the search, but the Chapter 30 entry in my version say "Sothoryos", while Chapter 52 appears to be mis-edited to "Sothoyros" and A Feast For Crows still says "Sothoros". The official maps all say Sothoryos.
Apologies though, for moving the article before I saw the talk page. This is probably something that should've been hammered out first.--Tim Thomason 21:44, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
