[German version]

Pisidian town on the north-western bank of the Lake of Burdur/Turkey, remains on the hill of Üveyik Burnu near Karakent [2]. Its (probably Greek) name has been deduced from the ethnicon ΛΥΣΙΝΙΕΩΝ of the coins; the few literary records provide distorted forms. Attested for the first time on the occasion of the campaign of Manlius Vulso (in 189 BC) to whom L. surrendered (Pol. 21,36; Liv. 38,15,8); L. is missing from the Byzantine diocese lists. Meagre coin minting under Septimius Severus [1].
