EPIPHANEIA (Ἐπιφανεία: Eth. Ἐπιφανεύς).


A city of Cilicia, which, Pliny says (5.27), was originally called Oeniandos: he places it in the interior of Cilicia. Cicero, in his description of his Cilician campaign, says that he encamped at Epiphaneia, which was one day's journey from the Amanus. Gn. Pompeius (Appian, App. Mith. ch. 96) settled some pirates here after he had broken up the robbers, and also at Adana and Mallus. The Table places Epiphaneia 30 M. P. east of Anazarbus [ANAZARBUS], and the same distance from Alexandria ad Issum. If Ptolemy's figures are right (5.8), we may collect that he supposed Epiphaneia to be near the place which he calls the Amanicae Pylae. It is mentioned by Ammianus (22.11), but he gives no information as to its position.


Stephanus (s. v.) mentions an Epiphaneia in Bithynia. [G.L]
