Stectorium or Stektorion (Ancient Greek: Στεκτόριον) was a town of ancient Phrygia, in the Phrygian Pentapolis between Peltae and Synnada, inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times.[1][2] Pausanias believed that Mygdon's tomb was located here.[3]

It was the seat of a bishop; no longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[4]

Its site is located near Kocahüyük in Asiatic Turkey.[1][5]
