Historically, it has also been known as Koyluhisar and Koyunlu Hisar. This name seemingly hails from the Latin colonia (Roman colony), as it was also the (identical?nearby) site of Colonia (in Armenia), which became important enough to be a suffragan in the Late Roman Province of Armenia Prima, but faded like most in Asia Minor.
In the late 19th century, the diocese was nominally restored as an Armenian Catholic titular bishopric of Colonia. As such it has incumbent of the lowest (episcopal) rank :
- Santiago Costamagna, Salesians (S.D.B.) (1895.03.18 – 1921.12.09)
- Edward Francis Hoban (1921.11.21 – 1928.02.21) (later Archbishop)
In 1929 it was promoted to titular archbishopric, in 1933 renamed Colonia in Armenia, avoiding confusion with Colonia in Cappadocia or German Colonia (Cologne). As such it is vacant, having had the following incumbents of the intermediary (archiepiscopal) rank :
- Vahan Kitchourian (1930.05.03 – 1931.06.08)
- Pietro Kedigian (1936.07.24 – 1957.09.17)
- Louis Batanian (1959.04.24 – 1962.09.04), as Auxiliary Eparch of Cilicia of the Armenians (patriarchate, actually in Beirut, Lebanon) (1959.04.24 – 1962.09.04); previously Archeparch of Mardin of the Armenians (1933.08.05 – 1940.08.10), Titular Archbishop of Gabula (1940.08.10 – 1952.12.06), Archeparch of Aleppo of the Armenians (Syria) (1952.12.06 – 1959.04.24); later Patriarch of Cilicia of the Armenians (Lebanon) ([1962.09.04] 1962.11.15 – 1976.04.22) as Ignatius (Iknadios) Bédros XVI Batanian and President of Synod of the Armenian Catholic Church (1969 – 1976.04.22)
- Paul Coussa (1969.08.26 – 1983.06.27)
