Sinda (Pisidia)

Sinda (Ancient Greek: Σίνδα) was an ancient town mentioned to have been situated on the western frontier of ancient Pisidia, in the neighbourhood of Cibyra and the river Caularis.[1] Stephanus of Byzantium,[2] who spoke of a Sindia as a town of Lycia, was thought to have alluded to the same place.[3] Some writers have confounded Sinda with Isionda, which is the more surprising, as Livy mentions the two as different towns in the same chapter;[4] modern scholars treat them as separate places.[5]

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