SASI´MA (Σάσιμα), a town of Cappadocia, 24 Roman miles to the south of Nazianzus; the place contained the first church to which Gregory of Nazianzus was appointed, and he describes it as a most miserable town. (It. Ant. p. 144; It. Heros. p. 577; Hierocl. p. 700, with Wesseling's note.) Some look for its site near the modern Babloma.
