Sittace or Sittake or Sittakê (Greek: Σιττάκη, Ptol. vi. 1. § 6; Akkadian Sattagū), was an ancient city, the capital of ancient Sittacene, in Assyria, at the southern end of this province, on the road between Artemita and Susa. (Strabo xvi. p. 744.) It is called Sitta (Σίττα) by Diodorus (xvii. 110). William Smith believed that Diodorus's Sambana also referred to Sittace.
The district of Sittacene appears to have been called in later times "Apolloniatis" (Strab. xi. p. 524).
