EUCA´RPIA

EUCA´RPIA (Εὐκαρπία: Eth. Εὐκαρπεύς, Eth. Eucarpenus), a town in Phrygia, not far from the sources of the Maeander, on the road from Dorylaeum to Apameia Cibotus; it was situated in a very fertile district, to which it is said to have been indebted for its name. The vine especially grew there very luxuriously. (Steph. B. sub voce Strab. xii. p.576.) Under the Roman dominion Eucarpia belonged to the conventus of Synnada, to the southwest of which city it was situated. (Plin. Nat. 5.29; comp. Ptol. 5.2.24; Hierocl. p. 666; Geogr. Rav.) Both Arundell (Discov. in As. Min. i. p. 136) and Kiepert place Eucarpia at no great distance from Segiclar, but its exact site is unknown.
