Carallia (Pamphylia)

Carallia (Ancient Greek: Καραλλία) was a city of the Roman province of Pamphylia Prima and is mentioned in the acts of the Council of Ephesus (431).[1] The same form of the name is given in the acts of the Council of Chalcedon (451).[2]

The 6th-century Synecdemus gives the name of this Pamphylian city as Καράλια (Caralia).[3]

William Smith took the Pamphylian Carallia to be identical with the town of Carallis ((Κάραλλις, Καράλλεια) in Isauria, which he identified with a place in Turkey called Kereli.[4] The site of the Pamphylian town is supposed to be at Uskeles.[5]


Extant documents give the names of three bishops of the ancient see of Carallia, a suffragan of the metropolitan see of Side, the capital of the province: Solon was at the Council of Ephesus in 431, Marcianus at the Council of Chalcedon in 451, and Mennas at the Third Council of Constantinople in 680.[6][7]

No longer a residential see, Carallia is today included in the Catholic Church's list of titular sees.[5]
