Charadrus (Greek: Χάραδρος) was a Catholic titular see of Asia Minor. According to Strabo[1] and Pseudo-Scylax[2] it was a harbour and fortress in Cilicia Tracheia (Κιλικία Τραχεῖα), between Anemurium and Antioch, The Greek name is Charadros or Charadrous, still retained in the name Kalandran.

Nounechios (Νουνέχιος), Bishop of Charadrus, was present at Chalcedon in 451.[3] The same prelate subscribed, in 458, the letter of the bishops of Isauria to Emperor Leo, with the double title Lamos and Charadrus.[4] This means that Charadrus was at an early date united with Lamos, a see in Isauria, suffragan to the Archdiocese of Seleuceia.
