Marciane (Marciana) is a Catholic titular see. The original diocese was in Lycia, a suffragan of Myra. It figures in the Notitiae episcopatuum from the sixth to the twelfth or thirteenth centuries, but it is not mentioned by any author and its situation remains unknown.


Le Quien (Oriens christianus, I, 983) cites three bishops:

  • Januarius, who attended in 448 the Council of Constantinople against Eutyches;
  • Augustine, who signed in 459 the synodal decree of Gennadius of Constantinople against simoniacs;
  • Marcian, who signed in 518 the decretal letter of the Council of Constantinople against Severus and other heretics and the report to Pope Hormisdas on the ordination of Epiphanius, Patriarch of Constantinople.
