OZOGARDANA a town in the middle of Mesopotamia, recorded by Ammianus, in his account of the advance of Juilianus through that country (24.100.2). He states that the inhabitants preserve there a throne or seat of judgment which they say belonged to Trajan. The same story is told in almost the same words by Zosimus of a place he calls Zaragardia (3.15). The place cannot now with certainty be identified; but Mannert thinks it the same as shortly afterwards bore the name of Pacoria, from Pacorus (5.2. p. 241); and Reichard holds it to be the same as Is or Izannesopolis (the present Hít).
