TEMI´SDIA ( Τεμισδία, Ptol. 6.4.3), one of the districts into which ancient Persia was divided. It cannot now be determined exactly what its position was; but, as it adjoined the Mesabatae, it probably was part of a long narrow plain which extends through that province in a direction north-west and south-east. (Lassen, in Erseh und Gruber's Encycl. vol. xvii. p. 438.)
