Prymnessus or Prymnessos (Ancient Greek: Πρύμνησσος), or Prymnesus or Prymnesos (Πρύμνησος),[1] was a town of ancient Phrygia, inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times.[2] It was the see of a Christian bishop. No longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[3]

Its site is located near Sülün in Asiatic Turkey.[2][4]
