Bruzus or Brouzos (Ancient Greek: Βροῦζος) was a town of ancient Phrygia, in the Phrygian Pentapolis, inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times.[1] Druzon, which Ptolemy places among the cities of Phrygia Magna, should be Bruzon.

It was the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[2]

Its site is located near Karasandıklı in Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
