Apameia

A titular metropolitan see of Syria, in the valley of the Orontes, whose episcopal list dates from the first century (Gams,( 446, 451). It was still a flourishing place in the time of the Crusades, and was known to the Arabs as Fâmieh. Vast ruins of a very ornamental charcter abound in the vicinity. For another Apameia (in Phrygia) known as Apameia Cibotos (the Ark) see "Bulletin Critique" (Paris, 1890), XI, 296-297. There was still another see of the same name in Bithynia, whose episcopal list is known since the fourth century (Gams,( 443).
