BASTI (Baza) Granada, Spain.

Town ca. 50 km NE of Guadix, mentioned in the Antonine Itinerary (401.8), on several occasions by Strabo, and in Livy (37.46.7) in connection with a Roman defeat by the Bastetani. it was an episcopal see during the Early Christian and Visigoth periods. The iberian cemetery has yielded a large number of Greek vases, indicating that it was used during the 5th and 3d c. B.C. Recent finds inchide the so-called Lady of Baza, a seated Iberian figure still bearing traces of polychrome and dating from the 4th c. B.C.
