Laodicea ad Libanum

Laodicea Pontica or Laodicea (Greek: Λαοδικεια), also transliterated as Laodiceia and Laodikeia was a Hellenistic town in Pontus; the site is now that of Ladik, Samsun Province, in northeastern Turkey. The city was founded in the hills (altitude 1000 [meters|m]) not far west of the lake Stiphane Limne, southwest of Amisus (modern Samsun).
