The secular history of this city is unknown. In the 6th century AD it is mentioned by Hierocles (Synecdemus 660, 4). It is found in the Notitiae Episcopatuum as late as the 13th century, among the suffragan sees of Ephesus. Le Quien (Oriens christianus I:729) mentions seven bishops of this city known by their presence at councils: Rhodon at Ephesus, 431; Basilicus at Chalcedon, 451; Eusebius at Constantinople, 536; George at Constantinople, 692; Gregory at Nicaea, 787; Peter at Constantinople, 869; Julian at Constantinople, 879.
