MERUS (Μῆρος), a town of Phrygia, which is mentioned only in the ecclesiastical writers as situated in Phrygia Salutaris, on the south-east of Cotyaeum. (Hierocl. p. 677; Socrat. Hist. Eccles. 3.15; Sozomen, 5.11; Constant. Porphyr. de Them. 1.4.) Some believe that the ruins near Dovaslán (commonly called Doganlu), of which Fellows heard (Discov. in Lycia, p. 134, &c.), belong to Merus. (Comp. Leake, Asia Minor, p. 24, &c.) [L.S] [p. 2.332]
