Miletopolis was apparently the chief settlement of a people called the Milatæ, whose name was hellenized to suggest a Milesian colony. Its people colonized Gargara. Miletopolis was a suffragan of Cyzicus until the 12th or 13th century. Around the end of the twelfth, it united with Lopadium as an archbishopric.
