Germa or Germe ( Ancient Greek: Γέρμη) or Germae or Germai (Γέρμαι), or  Hiera Germa or Hiera Germe (Ἱερά Γέρμη), meaning 'holy Germa', also known as Germa in Hellesponto to distinguish it from several other towns named Germa, was a town of ancient Mysia, situated between the rivers Macestus and Rhyndacus.  It appears in episcopal notices as a  archbishopric. No longer the seat of a residential archbishop, it remains a  titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.
Its site is located near Kiresun in
Asiatic Turkey.
