The district of Pisidia included all the mountainous country between Phrygia and the north of Pamphylia and north-east of Lycia.

In B.C. 39 Pisidia was bestowed by M. Antonius upon Amyntas, king of Galatia, who held it until his death in B.C. 25. In B.C. 6 Augustus founded a line of colonies, Antiocheia, Olbasa, Cremna, and Comama.
