that's actually how they are formed. years ago there was less people and less churches around in one city where the older bishops with their diocese were huge as in number of cities but not in families and churches. now churches are being built, more people are being served, so diocese become bigger. now a diocese cannot be divided as long as the bishop is alive.
also should there be a diocese everywhere there are copts?
