CO´RMASA or CURMASA (Κύρμασα), a place which the Roman consul Cn. Manlius came to in his march described by Livy (38.15). It is written Curmasa in Polybius (22.19). The Table gives a road from Laodiceia on the Lycus to Perge in Pamphylia. But Leake (Asia Minor, p. 154) remarks that “although the direct distance (between Laodiceia and Perge) is upwards of 100 geog. miles, there are only 46 M. P. marked in the Table: namely, [p. 1.687]34 between Themisonium and Cormasa, and 12 from Cormasa to Perge.” Ptolemy (5.5) enumerates Cormasa among the cities of Pisidia. It does not seem possible to make any conjecture as to the site of Cormasa.
