Commentary

Sagalassos or Agalassos (near modern Aglasun) was a suffragan bishopric of Antioch of Pisidia and appears as such in all notitiae. Its bishops are attested in documentary sources from 381 onward. It was situated on the frontier between Anatolikon and Kibyrraiotai (De Them., XIV, 37) on the side of the latter, but we classify it together with its metropolis. See Laurent, Corpus V/2, 437; Zgusta, 523; Phrygien und Pisidien, 368-69.
