Ceretapa or Keretapa (Ancient Greek: τὰ Κερέταπα), also called Diocaesarea or Diocaesareia or Diokaisareia (Διοκαισάρεια), was a Graeco-Roman town of Phrygia Pacatiana. It minted coins bearing the demonym Κερεταπεύς. The coins also show that there was near it a river or fountain Aulindenus. It was a bishopric; no longer the seat a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[1]

Its site is tentatively located near Kayadibi in Asiatic Turkey.[2][3]
