HYIA (Incirli) Turkey.

Town in Pisidia, 5 km S of Bucak. The site and name, previously unknown, have been identified by an inscription; the termination of the name is uncertain. The ruins are on a hill above a pass. The circuit wall, of coursed polygonal masonry, is preserved in part up to 4 m high. On the S slope is a building with three sides of masonry, the fourth consisting of a rockface 4 m high in which are a number of niches of varying size. Outlines of other buildings are discernible, and the hillside is covered with many squared blocks, architectural fragments, and sherds of Roman date.
