The region known by the name of Lycaonia was bounded on the west by Pisidia, on the north by Galatia, on the east by Cappadocia, and on the south by the mountainous country of Isauria or Cilicia Tracheia.

Barata, Dalisandus, Derbe, Hyde, Ilistra, Laranda, and Savatra; together with Iconium, Lystra, Laodiceia Combusta, and Parlais. There is no coinage earlier than the first century B.C.
