Polybotus or Polybotos (Greek: Πολύβοτος) was a city in the Roman province of Phrygia Salutaris. The city's bishop was a suffragan of Synnada, and later of Amorium. Its site is located 3 miles (4.8 km) southwest of Bolvadin in Asiatic Turkey.
- Strategius, present at the Council of Chalcedon (451);
- St. John the Thaumaturgus, whose feast is celebrated on 5 December and who lived under Leo the Isaurian.
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.
