From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cadi or Kadoi (Ancient Greek: Κάδοι) was a city of ancient Mysia according to Stephanus of Byzantium,[1] or of Phrygia Epictetius according to Strabo.[2] It was inhabited during Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine times.[3] The coins of Cadi bear the ethnic name Καδοηνων; and the river Hermus is represented on them. Cadi may be the place which Propertius calls "Mygdonii Cadi."[4] It was afterwards an episcopal see, in ecclesiastic province of Phrygia Pacatiana. No longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[5]

Its site is located near Gediz, Kütahya in Asiatic Turkey.[3][6]
