(ta Pogla)

Titular see in Pamphylia secunda. Pogla is mentioned only by Ptolemy, V, 5, possibly by Hierocles, "Synecdemus", 689, 4, but the name is written Socla and it refers without doubt to another locality. Money was coined with the pagan pogleon (Head, "Historia numorum", 591). At present it is the town of Foughla, sandjak of Adalia, vilayet of Koniah. Le Quien (Oriens christianus, I, 1027) mentions two bishops Paul, present at the Council of Chalcedon (451) and Nicephorus at the Council of Nicæa (787). The "Notitiæ Episcopatuum" continue to mention the see among the suffragans of Perge as late as the thirteenth century.
