Coordinates: 38°28′20″N 30°07′11″E / 38.4722714°N 30.1196556°E Eucarpia or Eukarpia (Ancient Greek: Εὐκαρπία) was a city in Phrygia and a bishopric in the late Roman province of Phrygia Salutaris, in Asia Minor.


Eucarpia (Eukarpia), mentioned by Strabo (XII, 576) and several other geographers, was situated not far from the sources of the Maeander River, on a road from Dorylaeum to Eumeneia, between the Dorylaeum-Acmonia and Dorylaeum-Synnada roads, probably at the modern Emirhissar, in Afyonkarahisar Province.[1]

It was situated in a very fertile district, to which it is said to have been indebted for its name. The vine especially grew there very luxuriously.[2]

Imposing ruins, seen by Hamilton in 1837, have almost disappeared. Little is known about the history of the city. Under Roman dominion, Eucarpia belonged to the conventus of Synnada, to the southwest of which city it was situated.[3] It struck its own coins from the time of Augustus until the reign of Volusianus.

Ecclesiastical history

The bishopric, a suffragan of Synnada, figures in the Notitiae episcopatuum until the twelfth or thirteenth century. Six bishops are known:

  • Eugenius, present at the Council of Nicaea (325),
  • Auxomenus in 381,
  • Cyriacus in 451,
  • Dionysius in 536,
  • Constantine or Constans in 787 (not mentioned by Lequien), and Constantine in 879.

Eucarpia is included in the Catholic Church's list of titular sees.[4]

Cestrus was a city in the Roman province of Isauria, in Asia Minor. Its placing within Isauria is given by Hierocles, Georgius Cyprius, and Parthey's (Notitiae episcopatuum). While recognizing what the ancient sources said, Lequien supposed that the town, whose site has not been identified, took its name from the River Cestros and was thus in Pamphylia. Following Lequien's hypothesis, the 19th-century annual publication Gerarchia cattolica identified the town with "Ak-Sou", which Sophrone Pétridès called an odd mistake, since this is the name of the River Cestros, not of a city.
