Corna or Korna was a town of ancient Lycaonia, inhabited in Byzantine times.[1] It 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 tentatively located near Dinorna hüyük, known as Orhaniye in Akören district, Asiatic Turkey.[1][3]
