A titular see of Asia Minor. According to the order of the "Synecdemus" of Hirerocles (p. 696) Kinna was probably in the north-western part of the rich corn-growing district called Haimane, west of Angora, though its exact position cannot be determined. It must have been close to Balyk Koyounji (vilayet of Angora) or even nearer to the River Sangarius. Kinna was a suffragan of Ancyra, in Galatia Prima. Lequien (I,483) mentions ten bishops : the first Gorgonius, was present at Nicaea, in 325; the tenth, Angonius, was a partisan of Photius in 879, and another, Sabas, was probably an adherent of St. Ignatius. The see figures in later "Notitiae episcopatuum".
