Lysinia (Ancient Greek: Λυσινία)[1] or Lysinoe (Λυσινόη) was a town in the north of ancient Pisidia and later assigned to Pamphylia.[2][3] Hierocles has the name as Lysenara (Λυσήναρα).[4] It was located on the south of the Ascania Lacus, and west of Sagalassus.

It became the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[5]

Its site is located near the modern town of Karakent in Burdur Province, Turkey.[6]
