A titular see of Pamphylia Secunda, suffragan of Perge. Panemotichus coined money during the Roman epoch (Head, "Historia numorum", 591). A Bishop Faustus assisted at the Council of Nicaea, 325, when the city belonged to Isauria. Later it was part of Pamphylia Secunda. Another bishop, Cratinus, may have assisted at the Council of Chalcedon , 451. Hierius signed the provincial letter to Leo the Wise. Helladius assisted at a Council of Constantinople in 536. ( Le Quien, I, 1031). There is record of no other bishop and the see is not mentioned in the "Notitiae Episcopatuum". The city is spoken of by Hierocles in the sixth century (Synecedemus, 681, 3) and in the tenth by Constantine Porphyrogenitus ("De thematibus", ed. Bonn, III, 38). Radet ("Les villes de la Pisidie", 4, reprinted from "Revue Archeologique", Paris, 1893) identifies it with the ruins of Badem Aghatch, south of Ghirme, in the vilayet of Koniah.
