A titular see in Galatia Secunda (Salutaris). This city is mentioned by Strabo, XII, 567; Ptolemy, V, 4, 10; Hierocles, "Synecdemus", 697, 7, and Stephanus Byzantius, s.v. According to the first of these authors it was situated in the salt desert, to the west of Lake Tatta (at the present time Touz Gueul), between Lycaonia and Haimama. The "Notitiæ episcopatuum" mention it among the suffragan sees of Pessinus, created by Theodosius between 386 and 395, and existing as late as the thirteenth century. There is a record of but one bishop, Pius, resent at the Council of Chalcedon , 451 ( Le Quien, "Oriens christianus" I, 493). The exact name and position of the city, which differs greatly according to various documents, is not known. Ramsay ( Asia Minor, 227), mentions the place as near the site of Piri Begli or a little to the east of it.
