Nora (Ancient Greek: τὰ Νῶρα) was a mountain fortress and town of ancient Cappadocia, on the frontiers of Lycaonia. Located at the foot of Mount Taurus, in which Eumenes was for a whole winter besieged by Antigonus (319 BC), before he escaped. In Strabo's time it was called Neroassus or Neroassos (Νηροασσός), and served as a treasury to Sicinus, who was striving to obtain the sovereignty of Cappadocia.
