TRAPEZO´POLIS

TRAPEZO´POLIS (Τραπεζόπολις or Τραπεζούπολις: Eth. Trapezopolitae), a town situated, according to Ptolemy (2.2.18), in Caria, but according to Socrates (Hist. Eccles. 7.36) and Hierocles (p. 665), in Phrygia. The former is the more correct statement, for the town stood on the southern slope of Mount Cadmus, to the south-east of Antiochia, and, according to the Notitia Imperil, afterwards belonged to the province of Pacatiana. It is possible that the ruins which Arundell (Discoveries, ii. p. 147) found at Kesiljah-bouluk may be those of Trapezopolis.
