Another Limnae was a city in Pisidia, which, as well as being called Λίμναι (genitive Λιμνῶν, as in πόλις Λιμνῶν, city of Limnae), was also called Λιμέναι (Limenae) and Λυμναία (Lymnaea). It has been identified with modern Gaziri, where there is a wall-surrounded island in Lake Hoyran called Limenia housing ruins that include those of a temple of Artemis. The Greek word Λίμναι means lakes or marshes. The Pisidian Limnae was an episcopal see, now listed in the Annuario Pontificio as a titular see.
