PHYLACEIUM

PHYLACEIUM (Φυλακεῖον or Πυλακαῖον), a town of western Phrygia, at a short distance from Themisonium. (Ptol. 5.2.26; Tab. Peut.; Geogr. Rav. 1.18, where it is called Filaction.) The Phrygian tribe of the Φυλακήνσιοι, mentioned by Ptolemy (5.2.27), undoubtedly derived its name from this place.
