Solyma was a town in south-west Anatolia (modern Turkey) during prehistory, located in a country named Solymia (which was known later as Milyas and Lycia).

The name Solyma is not directly attested but has been inferred from inscriptions and other evidence.[1] Its site is believed to have been near modern Fırıncık,[1][2] in Ağlı district, Kastamonu Province.
