Antiochia (Pisidia) - A settlement in Pisidia
Antiochia was a city in central Anatolia, often referred to as Antiochia in Pisidia or Antiochia in Phrygia. It has been a tradition to claim that the city dates back to the 3rd century BC and that it was founded by the Seleucid Dynasty, but it is likely older than that.

During the reign of Augustus, eight colonies were established in Pisidia, but only Antioch was honoured with the title of Caesarea and given the right of the Ius Italicum, maybe because of its strategic position. The city became an important Roman colony which rose to the position of a capital city with the name of "Colonia Caesarea".

One of the three surviving copies of the Res Gestae Divi Augusti, the famous inscription recording the noble deeds of the Emperor Augustus was found in front of the Augusteum in Antioch. The original was carved on bronze tablets and exhibited in front of the Mausoleum of Augustus in Rome, but unfortunately has not survived. The Antioch copy on stone was written in Latin which is a sign of the importance of the city as a military and cultural base of Rome in Asia.
