BAIAE (Βαΐαι: Bayas), a small place on the gulf of Issus, placed between Issus and the Cilician gates in the Antonine Itin. The site is identified by the name. “At the site of the Baiae or baths of the Romans, there is now a splendid Saracenic structure combining citadel, mosque, a covered bezestein, an elegant khan, and baths.” (Ainsworth, Travels in the Track of the Ten Thousand, &c. p. 56.) Baiae may be a Roman name; but nothing appears to be known of its origin.
