Synada was a Phrygian city probably founded around the late 4th century BC. It was situated in a strategic position along a major route. In the Early Byzantine period the city was included in the province of Phrygia Salutaris. However, in the Middle Byzantine period the city was incorporated into the theme of Anatolikon. The Byzantine dominion ended when the Byzantines were heavily defeated by the Seljuks in the battle of Manzikert in AD 1071.
