Ardistama, also known as Arissama, was a town of ancient Cappadocia, inhabited by Hittites in Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine times.[1] It was discovered in 1904 by Thomas Callander.[2] Its name may have been derived from Angdisis or Angdistis.[2]

Its site is located near Kale Tepe, Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
