History

The Ancient city of Kydonia, on Crete (insular Greece), had a bishop no later then the second Byzantine rule (961 AD until 1204 AD), when its name was changed to modern Chania.

The Venetians (and shortly Genoans), who conquered Crete, firmly established a Latin diocese. It was suppressed only in 1700.
