Asia Minor in the Greco-Roman period - general map - regions and main settlements.
Cinna or Kinna was a town of ancient Galatia. It was also the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential see, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.
Its site is located near Karahamzılı, Asiatic Turkey.
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.
During the late Roman Empire the town was a seat of a bishop, several of whom are known to us.
