ANDEDA Pisidia, Turkey.

At or near Yavuz, formerly Andya, some 24 km N of Korkuteli. The city is known only from coins and inscriptions, except that the Notitiae record a bishop of “Sandida.” The location is fixed by the evident survival of the name, and by a decree of the Council and People of the Andedans (AM 10 [1885], 337). About a km to the N of Yavuz is a stone marking the boundary between An(deda) and Po(gla). Apart from the fairly numerous inscriptions no remains of the city have been found, and the exact site remains uncertain.


W. M. Ramsay in AM 10 (1885) 335-39; A. M. Woodward in BSA 16 (1909-10) 123; G. E. Bean in AS 10 (1960) 65-67.
