Title: Silandus  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Lydia
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Silandus is a Catholic titular see. Its origin was a city in Lydia, suffragan of the archdiocese of Sardis, the present town of Selendi, Turkey.

The see of Silandus is mentioned in the Greek Notitiae episcopatuum until the thirteenth century; the city is not mentioned by any ancient geographer or historian. We possess some of its coins representing the Hermus. Some inscriptions but no ruins are now found there.


The list of bishops of Silandus given by Le Quien, Oriens christianus, I, 881, needs correction:

  • Markus, present at the Council of Nicaea, 325;[1]
  • Alcimedes at Chalcedon, 451;[2]
  • Andreas, at the Council of Constantinople 680; Stephanus, at Constantinople, 787;
  • Eustathius, at Constantinople, 879.[3]

The bishop mentioned as having taken part in the Council of Constantinople, 1351, belongs to the See of Synaus.[4]
