Sinda (Ancient Greek: Σίνδα) was an ancient town which seems to have been situated on the western frontier of Pisidia, in the neighbourhood of Cibyra and the river Caularis.[1] Stephanus of Byzantium,[2] who speaks of Sindia as a town of Lycia, is probably alluding to the same place.[3] Some writers have confounded Sinda with Isionda, which is the more surprising, as Livy mentions the two as different towns in the same chapter.[4]
