Timbrias, a titular see in Pisidia, suffragan of Antioch. It is called Thymbrium in the official lists of the Roman Curia, the name being more or less misspelled in documents, but the spelling here adopted is that found on coins where the inhabitants are called, in the genitive plural, Greek: timbriadeon. At a late period we find the form Timbriada, neuter plural, or perhaps Thymbriada. The exact site of the city is unknown. It is mentioned by Strabo (XII, 7, 2); the coins, bearing the figure of the Eurymedon, would indicate a locality near the upper part of that river, the lower part belonging to Byzantine Pamphylia. It was probably situated somewhere in the plain called Yilandi Ovassi, in the vilayet of Koniah. In ecclesiastical writings it is mentioned as late as the thirteenth century. Le Quien (Oriens Christianus, I, 1059) names three of its bishops: Constantine, present at the Councils of Constantinople, 680 and 692; John, at the Council of Nicaea, 787; Theodosius, at the Photian Council of Constantinople (879).
