Ninica-Claudiopolis — A settlement in Cilicia
Ninica-Claudiopolis was an ancient city of Cilicia. It is described by Theophanes of Byzantium as situated in a plain between the two Taurus Mountains.

It was an important Cilician transit trade centre, producing grapes, wheat, olives, figs and pomegranates. As a Roman colony it was known as Colonia Iulia Felix Augusta Ninica.

Most of the city remains unexcavated and there is no archaeological activity at the site.
