The small town of Orcistus1, like the proverbial lemon, had a chance, and took advantage of it. Under Diocletian, it had been shifted into Galatia when a slice of the old Province of Asia was reassigned. Diocletian, Emperor 284-305 CE, reorganised Roman administration and reshaped boundaries Empire-wide to create smaller provinces. These changes for the first time brought into existence two Roman provinces called 'Phrygia'. Until Diocletian, Phrygia (a large territory in inland western Asia) had been part of the province of Asia, as the map shows. The light grey area represents the pre- Diocletian province of Asia.
