Description:
Sozopolis in Pisidia, called Apollonia during Seleucid times, was an ancient town in the region of Pisidia, now in the Asian part of Turkey. It is not to be confused with the Thracian Sozopolis in present-day Bulgaria.

Sozopolis is noted for being the birthplace of Severus of Antioch (born approximately 465). Sozopolis is a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church. The icon of the Theotokos of Pisidian Sozopolis has its origins with the city, and is celebrated by Eastern Orthodox Christians on September 3. See September 3 .

Sozopolis sent its bishop and possibly two other representatives to the Council of Constantinople in 381, and its bishop attended the First Council of Ephesus in 431. ,

Some scholars locate the ruins of Sozopolis at Souzon, or at Uluborlu, but neither site has been excavated and the identifications can only be deemed tentative.

Fragments of the Res Gestae Divi Augusti in Greek have been found in the area.
