    A titular see in Lydia, suffragan of Sardis. It is not mentioned by any ancient geographer or historian. We possess some of its coins representing the Hermus. It is the present village of Selendi, chief town of a nahia in the caza of Koula in the vilayet of Smyrna, situated on the banks of the Selendi Tchai or Ainé Tchai, an affluent of the Hernus (now Ghediz Tchai). Some inscriptions but no ruins are found there. The list of bishops of Silandus given by Le Quien, "Oriens christianus", I, 881, needs correction: Markus, present at the Council of Nicaea, 325 (less probably bishop of Blaundus, as suggested by Ramsay, "Asia Minor", 134), Alcimedes at Chalcedon, 451 (Anatolius, who signed the letter of the bishops of the province to Emperor Leo, 458, belongs rather to Sala, Ramsay, ibid., 122); Andreas, at the Council of Constantinople 680; Stephanus, at Constantinople, 787; Eustathius, at Constantinople, 879 (perhaps Bishop of Blaundus). The bishop mentioned as having taken part in the Council of Constantinople, 1351, belongs to the See of Synaus (Wächter, "Der Verfall des Griechentums in Kleinasien im XIV Jahrhundert", Leipzig, 1903, 63, n. 1). The See of Silandus is mentioned in the Greek "Notitiae episcopatuum" until the thirteenth century.
