None of the given sources seems to identify Isaura Vetus = Isauropolis = Aydogmus, as it is done here. This is not about my personal opinion, to my knowledge there is no-one putting it in this line. Either Isaura *Nea* = Isauropolis = Aydogmus or Isaura Vetus = Isauropolis but I *never* read Isaura Vetus = Aydogmus so far.

The DARMC location Isauropolis/Aydogmus is correct (following TIB), but TIB does not at the same time put Isaura Vetus to Aydogmus (see TIB 4 s.v. Isauropolis and s.v. Leontopolis = Isaura Vetus).

I can elaborate further on that, if required.

Philipp: well spotted. A mistake seems to have been made in associating the DARMC location (coincident with Aydogmus) with this particular place. I have retracted it accordingly. The DARE location (coincident with modern Bozkır) remains. Please let me know if I have missed some aspect of this in setting things right.

Thanks Tom. Now it is in accordance with Barrington, that's fine (it's a very disputed topic ...).
