there is something odd about this place. BA DIR (p. 1218) lists Assyria Aulia = Metroon and places it SW of Sinope. The map (BAtlas 86) then labels Assyria as a region SW of Sinope.

Jeff, my reading of the directory is that there is no "Assyria Aulia" place. The Aulia=Metroon entry seems to be a special case, restating the existing "Metroon/Aulia" entry. Tom?
