Gratianopolis (Mauretania Caesariensis)
It is only known from mentions in church council minutes. Its history, location and present condition are unknown.
Gratianopolis sent bishops to several 5th-century church councils:
- Publicius (Catholic) and Deuterius (Donatist), both at the Conference of Carthage in 411
- Thalassius, present at the Conference of 480.
The see apparently does not figure in a list of the bishoprics of the province preserved in a document of the sixth and seventh centuries, unless it be disguised under the native name (see "Byzantinische Zeitschrift", 1892, II, 26, 31).
Since 1652, it has been revived as a titular bishopric of the Catholic Church.
