CE´RASAE or CERASSAE (Κέρασσαι, in Lydia, is mentioned by Nonnus (13.468) as a wine country. Major Keppel observed remains near Sirghie, which is opposite to Bagae. [BAGAE.] There were bishops of Cerasae (Cramer, Asia Minor, vol. i. p. 455); and as it was a Lydian bishopric, Sirghie may, as Cramer conjectures, be Cerasae. There is some resemblance between the names.
