SOZO´POLIS

SOZO´POLIS (Σωζόπολις᾿, a town noticed only by late writers as a place in Pisidia, on the north of Termessus, in a plain surrounded on all sides by mountains. (Hierocl. p. 672; Evagr. Hist. Eccles. 3.33.) It is possibly the same place which Stephanus B. notices under the name of Sozusa. Nicetas (Ann. p. 9) mentions that it was taken by the Turks, but recovered from them by John Comnenus. (Comp. Ann. p. 169; Cinnamus, p. 13.) The traveller Paul Lucas (Sec. Voy. vol. 1.100.33) observed some ancient remains at a place now called Souzou, south of Aglasoun, which probably belong to Sozopolis.
