Malus or Malos (Ancient Greek: Μάλος), also known as Mallus or Mallos (Μάλλος),[1] was a town of ancient Pisidia, inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times.[2] It became a bishopric; no longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[3]

Its site is located near Sarıidris, in Asiatic Turkey.[2][4]
