    A titular see of Asia Minor, suffragan of Ancyra in Galatia Prima. It is vainly sought in any "Notitiæ episcopatuum" or in any geography, ancient or modern, profane or ecclesiastical. It is a faulty spelling or variation of Verinopolis, so named in honour of Verina, mother-in-law of the Emperor Zeno. Le Quien (Oriens christ., I, 481) mentions three bishops: Stephen, present at the Trullan Council, 692; Anthimus, at the second Council of Nice, 787; Sisinnius, at the Councils of Constantinople, 869, 878. The diocese is described, about 640, in the "Ecthesis" of pseudo-Epiphanius (Gelzer, "Ungedruckte ... Texte der Notitiæ episcopatuum", 536); about 900, in the "Notitia episcopatuum" of Leo the Philosopher (Gelzer, op. cit., 552), under the name of Stauros; and about 940, in the "Notitia" of Constantine Porphyrogenitus (Georgii Cyprii, ed. Gelzer, "Descriptio orbis romani", 63). Stauros is not a substitute for Verinopolis, but rather the name of a neighbouring locality. Ramsay (Asia Minor, 247) and Anderson (Studia Pontica, 25) say that Verinopolis is the Byzantine name of Evagina, a station described by the "Tabula Peutinger" (X, I) and by Ptolemy (V, iv, 7) under the altered name of Phubagina. The ruins of Evagina-Verinopolis were discovered a little to the south-west of Keuhne, a nahié in the sandjak of Yuzgad, vilayet of Angora.
