Adrasus or Adrasos was a town of ancient Cilicia, and in the later province of Isauria, inhabited in Roman and Byzantine times.[1] It later became a bishopric; no longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[2]

Its site is located near Balabolu, Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
