Headword: Ἀνάζαρβον
Adler number: alpha,1866
Translated headword: Anazarbos, Anazarbus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Nerva, emperor of the Romans,[1] when Diocaesarea, which is in Cilicia, had been destroyed by an earthquake, sent a senator named Anazarbos; he rebuilt [the city], once called Kyinda, then Diocaesarea, and called it Anazarbos from his own name.
Greek Original:
Ἀνάζαρβον: ὅτι Νέρβας βασιλεὺς Ῥωμαίων κατενεχθείσης ὑπὸ σεισμοῦ Διοκαισαρείας, τῆς ἐν Κιλικίᾳ κειμένης, ἔπεμψε συγκλητι- κὸν, ὀνόματι Ἀνάζαρβον, ὃς ἀνοικοδομήσας αὐτὴν, πάλαι λεγομένην Κύϊνδαν, εἶτα Διοκαισάρειαν, ἐκ τοῦ ἰδίου ὀνόματος ἐκάλεσεν Ἀνάζαρβον.
Notes:
No source is specified, either here or when the material summarily reappears (under delta 1154 and kappa 2625). Stephanus of Byzantium knows both the city and its "founder" as Anazarba, but gives no history and no alternative names.
The Barrington Atlas (map 67 grid B2) gives alternative names for this city of Anazarbos, Caesarea, Ioustinianoupolis, Ioustinoupolis, [Justinianopolis, Justinopolis], Agrippias (in south-central Asia Minor, near the present-day village of Dilekkaya, Adana Province, Modern Turkey).
[1] Reigned 96-98 (nu 252).
