Laranda — A settlement in Lycaonia
Laranda was a city in Lycaonia, in Asia Minor.

Starting in the 6th century BC, it was under Achaemenid rule until 322 BC, when it was destroyed by Perdiccas, a former general of Alexander the Great, after he had defeated Ariarathes, king of Cappadocia. It later became a seat of Isaurian pirates.

It belonged to the Roman and later Byzantine Empire until it was captured by the Seljuks in the early 12th century.

Modern location: Karaman, Turkey
