Agathopolls, a titular see in the province of Hemimontus, now Akhtebolu, not far from the Black Sea. It was first a bishopric, then an arch- bishopric, and finally a metropolitan see, but noth- ing more is known of its ancient history, except that it had its own coinage. In the Middle Ages the city is mentioned by Byzantine historians; it is identified with the Gatapoli which appears in the ancient Italian ideographical writers ana is also men- tioned in 1204 in the "Partitio Romaniae."
