Lâdik (Turkish pronunciation: [ˈladic]) or Inanjids (Modern Turkish: İnançoğulları Beyliği ) was an Anatolian beylik with its capital in Denizli. It was one of the frontier principalities established by Oghuz Turkish clans after the decline of Seljuk Sultanate of Rûm. Its name derives from that of Laodicea on the Lycus.[1]

The current Turkish province of Denizli was named the sanjak (sub-province) of Lâdik till the early years of the Republic of Turkey.
