The Diocese of Alexandretta is a titular Christian bishopric centred on the town of Alexandretta in Turkey. It is also known as Alexandrinus or Cambysopolis. The bishopric of Alexandria Minor was a suffragan of Anazarbus, the capital and so also the ecclesiastical metropolis of the Roman province of Cilicia Secunda. No longer a residential diocese, Alexandria Minor is today listed by the Catholic Church as a titular see.[1]
