Κοτυάειον). A town of Phrygia, south of Dorylaeum, on the Thymbris, a branch of the Sangarius. Suidas says that, according to some accounts, it was the birthplace of Aesop the fabulist. Alexander, a grammarian of great learning and a voluminous writer, was also a native of Cotyaeum. Late Byzantine writers term it the metropolis of Phrygia.
