Marciana was a town in ancient Lycia, with a bishopric that was a suffragan of that of Myra.[1][2]

The author of the article in the 1910 Catholic Encyclopedia used the spelling Marciane.[3]

The town is not mentioned by any author and its exact location remains unknown, but the see figures in the Notitiae episcopatuum from the 6th to the 12th or 13th centuries.[3]
