Pacandus



Titular see, recorded under "Pacanden." among the titular sees in the official list of the Curia Romana as late as 1884, when it was suppressed as never having existed as a residential see. Its present titular is Mgr Léon Livinhac, superior general of the White Fathers. The name of "Pacanden." owes it origin, without doubt, to the See of Acanda in Lycia, whose bishop, Panaetius, signed in 458 the letter of the bishops of Lycia to Emperor Leo, and which is mentioned in the "Notitiae Episcopatuum" from the seventh to the thirteenth century among the suffragans of Myra. Its exact site is unknown.

LE QUIEN, Oriens christianus, I, 985; PETRIDES, Acanda in Dict. d'hist. et de geog. eccl., I, 253.
