Eukarpia, mentioned by Strabo (XII, 576) and several other geographers, was situated not far from the sources of the Maeander River, on a road from Dorylaeum to Eumeneia, between the Dorylaeum-Acmonia and Dorylaeum-Synnada roads, probably at the modern Emirhissar, in Afyonkarahisar Province.
It was situated in a very fertile district, to which it is said to have been indebted for its name. The vine especially grew there very luxuriously.
Imposing ruins, seen by Hamilton in 1837, have almost disappeared. Little is known about the history of the city. Under Roman dominion, Eucarpia belonged to the conventus of Synnada, to the southwest of which city it was situated. It struck its own coins from the time of Augustus until the reign of Volusianus.
