EUMENEIA(Εὐμένεια: Eth.Εὐμενεύς: Ishékle), a town of Phrygia, situated on the river Glaucus, on the road from Dorylaeum to Apameia. (Plin. Nat. 5.29; Strab. 12.576; Hierocl. p. 667.) It is said to have received its name from Attalus II., who named the town after his brother and predecessor, Eumenes II. (Steph. B. s. v.) Ruins and curious sculptures still mark the place as the site of an ancient town. (Hamilton, Researches,&c. vol. 2. p. 165.) On some coins found there we read Εὐμενέων Ἀχαίων,which seems to allude to the destruction of Corinth, at which troops of Attalus were present. The district of the town bore the name Eumenetica Regio,mentioned by Pliny (l. c.). (Comp. Franz, Fünf Inschriften u. fünf Städte in Kleinasien, p.10, foll.) COIN OF EUMENEIA.
