Mailoc or Maeloc was a 6th-century bishop of Britonia, a settlement founded by expatriate Britons in Galicia, Spain. He represented his diocese, referred to as the Britonensis ecclesia or "British church", at the Second Council of Braga in 572. Records of the council refer to his see, the sedes Britonarum ("See of the Britons"), which is likely the monastery of Santa Maria de Bretoña. Mailoc's name is clearly Brythonic, deriving from the Celtic *Maglācos, thereby providing evidence for the British presence in the area.
