Hyde or Hyda was a town of ancient Cappadocia and later of Lycaonia, near the frontiers of Galatia.[1][2] It became a bishopric; no longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains, under the name Hyda in Lycaonia, a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[3]

Its site is tentatively located near Akçaşehir, Asiatic Turkey.[4][5]
