Cizari or Kizari (Ancient Greek: ἡ Κίζαρι), also called Icizari or Ikizari (Ἰκίζαρι), was a settlement and fort of ancient Pontus, in the district Phazemonitis, on Lake Stiphane. It was deserted in Strabo's time, and there was a palace built near it.[1]

Its site is located southwest of Lâdik, Asiatic Turkey.[2][3]
