Zaliches (Greek: Ζαλίχης) or Zaliscus or Zalecus or Leontopolis, was an ancient town in the interior of Paphlagonia, or what, at a late period, was called Hellenopontus, probably near some mountain forest, as Hierocles (p. 701) calls it Σάλτος Ζαλίχης (Novell. 28; Cone. Nicaen. ii. p. 355, where a bishop of Zaliches is mentioned.) Modern scholars place the town at Alaçam, Samsun Province, Turkey.
