Amblada (Ancient Greek: Ἄμβλαδα) was a town of ancient Lycaonia or of Pisidia, inhabited in Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine times. It was the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential see, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church. Strabo places it in Pisidia; the bishopric was suffragan to the metropolitan of Lycaonia. The coin minted copper coins during the period of the Antonines and their successors, with the epigraph Ἀμβλαδέων.
