EUPHO´RBIUM

EUPHO´RBIUM a town in Phrygia, between Synnada and Apameia, on the spot of the modern Sandukli (Leake, Asia Minor, p. 165), formed, together with the towns of Metropolis, Peltae, Acmonia, and some others, the conventus of Apameia. (Plin. Nat. 5.29; comp. Geogr. Rav.) It seems, like Eucarpia, to have received its name from the fertility of its territory. (Comp. Hamilton, Researches in Asia Minor, vol. ii. p. 169.)
