in Phrygia Magna, is placed by the Table between Eucarpia and Nacolea, 32 miles from Eucarpia and 40 from Nacolea. Pliny (5.32
) means this place when he speaks of Conium, and Ptolemy (5.2
) has it Conna. Harduin observes on the passage of Pliny (5.32
) that the old reading was Iconium. Under the Byzantine empire Conna was called Cone, and was a bishopric of Phrygia Salutaris, of which Synnada was the metropolis.
It is very difficult to fix the position of this place from the Table and from Ptolemy. Leake supposes that Conni may be “not far to the southward of Altun Tash,
near where the roads to Altun Tash,
both from Karahissár
and from Sanduali,
cross the ancient road.” (Leake, Asia Minor,
p. 166.) Altun Tash
is a little north of 39° N. lat., and due south of Kutahiyah.
