Saint Theophilus of Cilician Armenia

Saint Theophilus the Penitent or Theophilus of Adana (died c. 538 AD) was a cleric in the sixth century and lived in the Armenian city of Adana. Adana is a populous city of Armenian origin in Cilicia.

Cilician Armenians are present in the modern states of Lebanon and Syria. Ayas was a major port in Cilicia (Kilikia).

An Armenian song pays tribute to the orphans of Adana: Adanayi Voghpere.
