Cidramus or Kidramos, also known as Kidrama, was a town of ancient Phrygia and later of Caria, inhabited in Roman and Byzantine times.[1] It became a bishopric; no longer the seat of a residential bishop, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[2] The town issued coins with the legend ΚΙΔΡΑΜΗΝΩΝ.

Its site is located near Yorga in Asiatic Turkey.[3][1]
