Zephyrium or Zephyrion (Ancient Greek: Ζεφύριον), also called Zephyrium on the Calycadnus to differentiate it from other towns called Zephyrium, was a town of ancient Cilicia on the Calycadnus River near its mouth, on a promontory of the same name.[1][2]

Its site is located near the mouth of the Calycadnus in Asiatic Turkey.[3][4]
