Polybotus or Polybotos (Greek: Πολύβοτος), modern Bolvadin, Turkey, was a city in the Roman province of Phrygia Salutaris. The city's bishop was a suffragan of Synnada.

History[edit]

This town is mentioned in the 6th century by Hierocles in is Synecdemus, 677, 10. It is also prominent in the Alexiad, and the campaigns of Alexios I Komnenos against the Seljuk Turks.

Bishops[edit]

Le Quien mentions two bishops:[1]

At the Second Council of Nicaea (787), the see was represented by the priest Gregory.

The earliest Greek Notitia Episcopatuum of the 7th century places the see among the suffragans of Synnada. But from the 9th century until its disappearance as a residential see, it was a suffragan of Amorium. See the "Basilii Notitia" in Heinrich Gelzer, Georgii Cyprii descriptio orbis romani (Leipzig, 1890), 26.

The bishopric is included in the Catholic Church's list of titular sees.[2]
