Theodorias ( ) was a Byzantine province created in 528 by Emperor Justinian I and named in honour of his wife, the Empress Theodora. It comprised a small coastal territory taken from the earlier provinces of Syria Prima and Syria Secunda. The new province remained part of the Diocese of the East. Its capital was Laodiceamarker, and it also included the cities of Paltus, Balaneae and Gabalamarker. Ecclesiastically, these cities retained their former allegiances to the metropolitan bishops of Syria Prima and Secunda. The province survived until the Muslim conquest of Syria in the 630s.
