PLOTINO´POLIS (Πλωτινόπολις, Ptol. 3.11.13), a town of Thrace, on the road from Trajanopolis to Hadrianopolis, and connected with Heraclea by a by-road. (Itin. Ant. pp. 175, 322.) According to the Itinerary, it was 21 miles distant from Hadrianopolis. It was probably founded by Trajan at the same time with Trajanopolis, and named after his consort Plotina. It was restored by Justinian. (Procop, Aed. 4.11.) Variously identified with Dsjisr-Erkene, Bludin, and Demotica; but Pococke (3.100.4) thinks that the ruins near Uzun Kiupri belong to it.
