Toriaeum or Toriaion was a town of ancient Lycia, inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times. During Roman times it was a Roman colony; during Byzantine times it seems to have appeared in the Synecdemus as Komistaraos (Ancient Greek: κώμης Τοριαίου, romanizedkomis Toriaiou).[1]

Its site is located near Kozağaci, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Kizilcadağ and 32 kilometres (20 mi) north of Elmalı, in Asiatic Turkey.[2]
