Title: Himeria  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Ibas of Edessa
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Himeria was an ancient city in the Roman province of Osrhoene. It is also a Roman Catholic titular see, a suffragan of the archbishopric of Edessa.


The city, which was destroyed, has not been rediscovered; but it is thought to have been located near the Euphrates and Europos or Carchemish (Djerabis).

The "Notitia" of Anastasius, in the sixth century, still mentions this episcopal see as being in that province and in the Patriarchate of Antioch ("Echos d'Orient", Paris, 1907, 145). Procopius ("De aedificiis", II, 9) says that Byzantine Emperor Justinian I rebuilt its walls.

At least seven bishops are known from the fourth to the sixth century, the first of whom, Eustathius, was in correspondence with Saint Basil (Lequien, Oriens christianus II, 983-86).
