Özet

The late antique, early Byzantine settlement area locates at 12 km. distance to southwest of Karabuk Central District, on a sloping land with an altitude of 700 meters piedmont of Keltepe mountain. This settlement area, called as Zora, Zara, Zopran, Sora, Sopran or some other similar names by the researchers, locates within the boundaries of Akoren (Kalekoy) and Zopran today. This area is one of the five central eparchies bounded to Paphlagonia district of Gangra (Cankiri).
