Appia (Ancient Greek: Ἀππία) was a town of ancient Phrygia, inhabited during Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine times.[1] According to Pliny the Elder, it belonged to the conventus of Synnada.[2] It became the seat of a bishop in the ecclesiastical province of Phrygia Pacatiana; no longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[3]

Its site is located near Pınarcık in Asiatic Turkey.[1][4]
