AMO´RIUM (Ἀμόριον: Eth. Ἀμοριεύς), a city of Phrygia, according to Strabo (p. 576). Its probable position can only be deduced from the Peutinger Table, which places it between Pessinus (Bala Hissar) and Laodicea. Hamilton (Researches, &c. vol. i. p. 451) identifies it with Hergan Kaléh, where there are the ruins of a large city; but the present remains appear to belong to the fourth or fifth centuries of our aera. This determination would place Amorium in Galatia.
