Pionia (Mysia)

Pionia (Ancient Greek: Πιονία) or Pioniai (Πιονίαι) was a town in the interior of ancient Mysia, on the river Satnioeis, to the northwest of Antandrus, and to the northeast of Gargara.[1] Under the Roman dominion it belonged to the jurisdiction of Adramyttium,[2] and in the ecclesiastical notices it appears as a bishopric of the Hellespontine province.[3] No longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[4]

Its site is located near Gömeniç in Asiatic Turkey.[5][6]
