The bandon of Trebizond was an administrative division covering a small area around Trebizond. Due to its key position, the most important events of its history are connected with the historical fate of the city and the Empire of Trebizond. It is reported on a chrysobull of Alexios III Grand Komnenos (1386). It is not certain whether that late reference corresponds to a pre-existing division of the theme of Chaldia in the Middle Byzantine period.
