Cinna or Kinna was a town of ancient Galatia.[1] It was also the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential see, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[2]

Location[edit]

Its site is located near Karahamzılı, Asiatic Turkey.[3][4][5] The exact location of Cinna is now lost though it is thought to have been near village of Balyk Koyounji (vilayet of Angora) in a rich corn-growing area, west of Ankara.[6][7]

History[edit]

During the late Roman Empire the town was a seat of a bishop, several of whom are known to us.[8]

  • Gregorius, attendee at Council of Niceae 325
  • Philumenus of Cinna[9][10]
  • Acacius[11]
  • Daniel
  • Amiantus
  • Plato
  • George[12]
