EIBEOS (Payamalani) Turkey.

Site in Phrygia 7 km NE of Sebaste, on the W slope of Mt. Bulkaz. Previously known as Paleo Sebaste or Leonna, it has now been identified as Eibeos from an inscription found in 1973. Today there are only a few houses on the site, and the nearest village is Eldeniz. Remains of ancient walls, among which only a Byzantine church can be distinguished, can be seen between Eldeniz and Payamalani. The necropolis has been pillaged, but some fragments of sarcophagi and door stelai are in the Selçikler (Sebaste) Museum Depot, and in the Uşak and Afyon museums.
