It is mentioned as an episcopal see in Heinrich Gelzer's Nova Tactica (1717) and in Parthey's Notitiae episcopatuum, III (c. 1170-1179) and X (12th or 13th centuries), as a suffragan of Philippi in Macedonia. Lequien (II, 65) speaks of the see, but mentions no bishop. Manuscript notes give the names of two titulars: Meletius, who was alive in April 1329, and Gabriel, in November 1378.
In 1951 Bishop Fulton J. Sheen was named Titular Bishop of Caesaropolis by Pope Pius XII. http://www.archbishopsheencause.org/the-cause/timeline
