There were several cities named Caesarea in the area of Syria/Cilicia/Cappadocia (a popular name in the early days of the Roman Empire).  It is uncertain where this Caesarea was located, or even whether the city kept the name for more than a few years.
Added note: B. Tahberer in The Numismatic Chronicle 175, 2015 has identified this Caesarea as Mopsuestia in Cilicia.
