Callistratia or Kallistratia (Ancient Greek: Καλλιστρατία) was a town on the Black Sea coast of ancient Paphlagonia, at a distance of 20 stadia east of Cape Carambis [Wikidata] (modern Kerempe Burnu).[1] It was also called Marsilla or Marsylla, according to the anonymous Periplus.

Its site is tentatively located near Kışla in Asiatic Turkey.[2][3]
