), or probably more correctly Savatra (Σαύατρα
), as the name appears on coins, was an open town in Lycaonia, in the neighbourhood of Apameia Cibotus, on the road from thence to Laodiceia The place was badly provided with water (Strab. xiv. p.668
; Ptol. 5.4.12
; Hierocl. p. 672; Tab. Peut.
), whence travellers are inclined to identify its site with the place now called Su Vermess,
that is, “there is no water here.”
