Anazarbus — A settlement in Cilicia
Anazarbus was an ancient Cilician city and (arch)bishopric, which remains a Latin Catholic titular see.

It was founded by Assyrians. Under the early Roman Empire the place was known as Caesarea, and was the Metropolis (capital) of Late Roman province Cilicia Secunda.

Rebuilt by the Eastern Roman emperor Justin I after an earthquake in the 6th century, it became Justinopolis (525); but the old native name persisted, and when Thoros I, king of Lesser Armenia, made it his capital early in the 12th century, it was known as Anazarva.

Modern location: 15 km west of the main stream of the present Ceyhan River
